AMD Ryzen 3950X Hits Up To 4.4 GHz on all Cores when Overclocked

    After the massive success of the Zen 2 processors released so far, there is a lot of hype for the next one, the Ryzen 9 3950X. The 16 core (32 thread) chip aims to bring HEDT levels of performance to the mainstream market. With lots of PC building enthusiasts eagerly awaiting its launch, we have some good news for them.

    Recently, a Zen 2 overclocking guide was released by Gigabyte which features a Ryzen 9 3950X. The sample was able to sustain an impressive 4.4 GHz all-core boost using an EK-KIT P360 at about 1.45V on a Gigabyte X570 Aorus Master. The CPU was paired with 16 GB DDR4 3200 MHz Aorus memory, and upon running Cinebench R15, scored 4,475 points.

    Unfortunately, though, it appears to be that they couldn’t pass Prime95 with it at these speeds, and had to dial it down to 4.3 GHz at 1.4V to be completely stable.

    The 3950x, which was originally slated for a release in September, has been delayed to launch in November, reportedly due to unsatisfactory boost clocks. Let’s pray to the PC gods that AMD doesn’t come across any more setbacks, so we can get our hands on it soon.

    Meanwhile, in the budget segment, the Ryzen 5 3500 has also started shipping in certain countries. The 3500 is basically a 3600 without SMT. This makes it ideal for gaming as very few titles leverage the technology. The 3500 is well-positioned to take on the 12K Intel Core i5-9400F which at the moment is the best budget gaming CPU.
