Remember when we informed you about the 5.4 GHz record on the Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX? It turns out that this was not the upper limit that the IvanCupa overclocker has now broken, reaching almost 6 GHz on all cores.
Of course, there was cooling with liquid nitrogen, which was completed with the MSI X399 MEG Creation motherboard and a single DDR4 module with a capacity of 8 GB. This last detail could be critical in the entire operation, as in the case of the 5.4 GHz record, dual-channel configurations were chosen. As you probably know, the differences between the “single and dual” when overclocking the processor are huge – of course in favor of one bone.
It’s just a pity that the Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX was not stable at round 6 GHz. Only 45 MHz was missing to reach the clock frequency twice as high as the base value. However, not even a week has passed since the premiere of this 32-core monster, so we can be sure that even higher records will come after today’s 5955 MHz. Just imagine if these performances were possible with simple water cooling …
