It seems the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D has been up to more impressive overclocking feats, with a recent HWBOT entry for an apparent engineering sample revealing an astonishing score in a Cinebench R20 multi run. While there is some discussion about the veracity of this overclocked Ryzen 7 5800X3D score, it does bode well for upcoming Ryzen 7000 X3D processors.

Just recently, an AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D sample was spotted practically on fire on CPU-Z Validator, and now there is a record of the same SKU (and a supposed engineering sample at that) producing an amazing Cinebench R20 multi score of 6,723 points. The run was assisted by an LN2 cooling system and Asus ROG Crosshair VIII Dark Hero motherboard, while the voltage recorded was 1.29 V on Cinebench and 1.325 V on CPU-Z. According to AMD, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D is a 105 W TDP chip with a maximum clock of up to 4.5 GHz. The Zen 3 Vermeer part is measured at just over 5.2 GHz in this particular situation.

To put that incredible score into perspective, there are three scenarios where it can be compared. Firstly, our own Cinebench R20 test score for the Ryzen 7 5800X3D was 5,479 points, leaving this overclocked sample a massive +22.70% ahead. The current top score for this particular AMD chip in Cinebench R20 in the HWBOT database is 6,369 points, so this incredible ES run is even +5.56% beyond the chart leaders. Last but not least, the result for the overclocked 8-core Ryzen 7 5800X3D is in the same area as those from 10- and 16-core parts such as the Intel Core i5-12600K (10c) and the aging AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X (16c).

Of course, the result has appeared on Reddit a couple of times already and has been met with some intense scrutiny and skepticism. Some have called it out as fake while others have questioned the use of Windows 7 as the OS. However, if this overclocked Ryzen 7 5800X3D ES run, which is still listed on HWBOT, is genuine, then it yet again indicates the capabilities of this fast gaming processor and will justify any excitement that is building in regard to the upcoming Ryzen 7000 X3D chips that should step performances up yet another level. Zen 4-based Ryzen X3D parts could be on the shelves by early 2023.
