AMD’s flagship workstation processor Threadripper PRO 5995WX is described as “nonoverclockable” by AMD. However, with the right motherboard based upon the WRX80 chipset you can overclock it. The Taiwanese overclocker TSAIK was also able to do the same. In his test bench, he used an MSI WS WRX80 motherboard and was able push the Threadripper Pro 5995WX up to 5.15GHz. This is the frequency of all 64 cores, it would seem.
The Threadripper PRO 5995WX’s base frequency is 2.7 GHz. When loading a single core, it is 4.5 GHz. This means that the increase in frequency relative to maximum passport frequency is only 14%. However, overclocking can be very significant and has an impact on the results.
The Threadripper PRO 5995WX ran at 5.15 GHz and didn’t just surpass the 100,000 mark in CinebenchR23. It also performed well. This resulted in 116,142 points in the multi-threaded testing, which is a world record that’s reflected in HWBot.
The Ryzen Threadripper3990X was overclocked to a frequency at 5.25 GHz. This gave rise to the previous maximum result of 105,170. As in the case with TSAIK, a liquid-nitrogen-based cooling system (LNG) was used.
