AMD Ryzen 9 7950X CPU could hit an epic 5.85GHz, but in order for that to happen you will be needing a cooler that’s really great at what it does, excellently. Reports even claim a peak boost of 5.85GHz with more serious caveats though.
AMD Ryzen 9 7950X CPU Could Hit an Epic 5.85GHz
The Ryzen 9 7950X of AMD has been the subject of fresh new leaks in regards to the boost clock speeds which the next-gen flagship CPU is capable of getting to.
This claim is however at the moment coming from Wccftech whose sources cite that while we all know that the 7950X is rated by AMD at a boost of up to 5.7GHz, this very peak boost will be exceeding that number and potentially even hitting 5.85GHz as a maximum peak speed.
What This Really Means
What this really means is that you may be seeing speeds of 5.85GHz at stock thus meaning directly out of the box, no tuning or overclocking applied here from the flagship chip may be at least some of the times with some huge caveats.
The Ryzen 9 7950X apparently also will have an all-core boost of up to 5.1GHz ( some caveats also apply here) meaning that the CPU will be capable of getting that very speed across all of its 16 cores. Whereas the much faster-mentioned boost will only be applicable to a single core in plenty of scenarios. You should however know that pushing all of the cores flat out is a really obvious and more demanding task than just one or two having the pedal to the metal.
Leaks of a 5.85GHz Top Speed for a Pre-Release 7950X Has Been Shared In The Past
You should note here that we have already seen leaks of a 5.85GHz top speed for a pre-release 7950X before in the past. That being said, it only backs up the now-present assertion. AMD Ryzen processors however are popularly known to be able to topple the rated boost even at stock configurations. It is therefore no surprise to see a real modest bump here.
