AMD’s remarkable processor Ryzen Threadripper 3990X was tested by overclocking to 5.5 GHz. AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X also showed its strength while 6 different world records were broken in tests.
AMD launches the third generation Threadripper processor Ryzen Threadripper 3990X, the latest and most powerful processor. Within 24 hours after the processor’s release, the new processor was overclocked and broke 6 different records.
According to the news of Tom’s Hardware, the master overclocker TSAIK showed what Allen “Splave” Golibersuch and safedisk processor can do. Combining the new HEDT processor with the hardware of their choice, the team managed to accelerate the 64-core processor to a high speed of 5.5 GHz.
New overclocking world records are broken
Using liquid nitrogen (LN2) for cooling the system, TSAIK has matched the processor with the MSI Creator TRX40 motherboard and DDR4 RAM tuned to 1886 MHz, timing 13-13-13-31 CL, achieving a speed of 5,548.71 MHz.
Splave preferred ASRock TRX40 Taichi motherboard. Thus, it managed to increase the processor to 5.475.43 MHz. Safedisk managed to reach 5.125 MHz and 5.225 MHz with wPrime 1024m.
The records came after the results explaining that the processor outperformed Intel Xeon Platinum 8280 processors in benchmark tests. The price of the Intel Xeon Platinum 8280 is $ 10,009, while the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X is currently sold for $ 3,990.
AMD continues to push Intel
The difference in price and performance is not good for Intel, whose market share has been threatened by AMD in recent years. The processor manufacturer has a hard time maintaining its position for both individual and corporate customers.
AMD is not willing to stop at this point. The company has already started working on the 4000 series. In previous statements from the company, it was announced that the Ryzen 4000 series will be released in 2020. Let’s see if Intel can respond to AMD’s pressures. Or will we see a new processor king in the coming years?
