During the Ryzen technology event, overclockers broke two frequency world records with the flagship Ryzen 7 1800X. I was actually there at that precise moment they reached the tweak.
Der8auer pushed the Ryzen 7 1800X to 5.8GHz on an insane voltage of 1.97v, and officially claimed the frequency world record on HWBot. Der8auer achieved this feat using the liquid nitrogen, with test bench featuring an Asus Crosshair VI Hero motherboard and 16GB of 2400MHz DDR4 CL11 memory.
The other Ryzen 7 frequency world record was achieved by the Swedish overclocker Elmor. He used LN2 to push his Ryzen 7 1800X to 5.36GHz on all 8 cores. The CPU scored 2454 points in the Cinebench R15’s multi-threaded test, breaking the previous world record by 9 points which was achieved with an Intel Core i7 5960X overclocked to 6GHz.
This is pretty impressive considering the fact that Ryzen 7 1800X is clocked at over 600MHz less than the i7 5960X, but it’s still able to outperform that latter. Not only this but the i7 5960X also has the advantage of featuring quad-channel DDDR4 memory compared to Ryzen’s dual channel.
I included some photos that I took just 10 minutes before they hit the WR.
