Ryzen 9 7950X hailed by AMD as a Cinebench record-breaker on LN2

AMD now officially claims that the Ryzen 9 7950X has smashed its way to the top of the Cinebench benchmark's rankings for processors on LN2. The OEM's XOC team has reportedly broken the previous record set using that method of cooling by just over 16% with the new silicon. The group has also released potentially class-leading scores for the 7000-series flagship using a standard liquid cooler.

The Ryzen 9 7950X has been dogged by leaks pointing to potentially class-leading scores on benchmarks such as Cinebench long before its official announcement. Now, AMD has effectively validated these claims by releasing its own in-house results for the new top-end processor using LN2.

The company's XOC team also prefaced these long-awaited scores with results for the same processor on "conventional" cooling. The 9 7950X is rated for a base clock of 4.5GHz; however, it is now officially backed to hit up to 5.5GHz (all cores) under certain conditions. They include the use of a 280mm AIO cooler, which helped the new Ryzen flagship to the following results:

228,992 MIPS/7-Zip 5.45GHzMSI MEG X670E ACE32GB/Corsair 

 

Accordingly, AMD touts the 9 7950X as capable of "chart topping scores in multi-thread tests". However, they have already been blown out of the water by the processor's new LN2 results. XOC has now posted scores of no less than 48,235 in Cinebench R23 nT using a REAKTOR 2.1 pot with the ASUS ROG Crosshair motherboard and G.SKILL DDR5 RAM as above.

This test did not confirm the 9 7950X's rumored and astronomical over-7GHz single-core score; however, it does purport to establish that it can in fact overclock to as high as 6.45GHz on all cores.

Furthermore, it also went up to 6.5GHz in a second test using a combination of the ASROCK X670E Taichi, the G.SKILL RAM and a Kingpin T-Rex LN2 pot, which resulted in a score of 18,605 in Cinebench R20 nT.

Therefore, it now falls to the new AMD chip's Raptor Lake rival to live up to its own fables of at least equally world-beating performance on its own launch.

Subject: AMD Ryzen 9 7950X Sets Overclocking Records with Conventional Cooling

 

Hi Allen,

 

Ahead of the launch of the Ryzen 7000 Series desktop processors, AMD today revealed a preview of Ryzen 9 7950X overclocking performance, pushing the processor to new heights to break several overclocking records.

 

Using standard liquid cooling, the Ryzen flagship achieved chart topping scores in multi-thread tests, including:

 

  • 40,498 in CB R23 nT with a Ryzen 9 7950X @ 5.4GHz all-core using a 280mm AIO, ASROCK X670E Taichi motherboard and 32GB Kingston DDR5 memory.
  • 15,771 in CB R20 nT with a Ryzen 9 7950X @ 5.35GHz all-core using a 280mm AIO, GIGABYTE X670E AORUS Master motherboard and 32GB G.SKILL DDR5 memory.
  • 6,900 in CB R15 nT with a Ryzen 9 7950X @ 5.5GHz all-core using a 280mm AIO, ASUS ROG Crosshair X670E Hero and 16GB G.SKILL DDR5 memory.
  • 228,992 MIPS in 7-Zip with a Ryzen 9 7950X @ 5.45GHz all-core using a 280mm AIO, MSI MEG X670E ACE motherboard and 32GB Corsair DDR5 memory.

 

We also have some assets including pictures and a video of our AMD XOC team in action here. As a heads up we plan to follow-up again shortly with some LN2 records!

 

Please let me know if you have any questions.

 

Thanks!

Courtney
