AMD has given Intel a run for their money with their third generation Ryzen CPUs. The Zen 2 architecture has seen some amazing benchmarks, surpassing those of Intel’s Coffee Lake. The Zen 2 has finally closed the gap between Intel and AM with their 7nm chips and in many cases even surpassed Intel. But right now, one of their processors is still waiting to be revealed, the Ryzen 9 3950X. The Ryzen 9 3950x will be released with AMD’s 3rd generation Threadripper CPUs.

What has been revealed about the processor though, is that Gigabyte managed to reach Overclocking speed of 4.3 GHz on Ryzen 9 3950x. They released an instruction manual, which was spotted by Hexus and has since been removed. In the manual, it was shown that Gigabyte was using the Gigabyte X570 Aorus Master motherboard, with an AMD Ryzen 9 3950X processor installed, 16GB of DDR4 3200MHz RAM, and a liquid cooler with 360mm radiator.

In the manual Gigabyte reported that they reached a clock boost max of 4.7 GHz on Cinebench, but that was just on two of Ryzen 9 3650x’s 16 threads. The stable clock speed that all the 16 cores could achieve was 4.3GHz at 1.4v. They also compared it to the base clock speed an found that it scored 10 per cent better, a 452 point increase in the Cinebench score. That is a score of 4384. In comparison, its Intel equivalent, i9 9980XE managed to score 3,700.

This looks very promising from AMD, and it comes right in the holiday season, which means discounts. It still remains to be seen whether the performance that Gigabyte managed to get from the CPU can be replicated on the CPUs that will be shipped to masses. But for now, Intel will definitely be sweating with these scores.
