Fastest CPU in the world: Threadripper Pro 5995WX breaks world record
AMD’s new professional CPU Threadripper Pro 5995WX has taken on an extreme overlocker and thus broken the world record in the benchmark tool Cinebench R23.
The fastest CPU in the world comes from AMD – at least in terms of multi-core performance.
The Taiwanese extreme overclocker “TSAIK” has taken on AMD’s new Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5995WX workstation CPU and thus broken the world record in the multi-core test of the benchmark tool Cinebench R23. The $6,500 HEDT processor has 64 cores and 128 threads, with a default boost clock of 4.5 GHz. But with extensive overclocking, TSAIK managed to increase the boost clock to 5.15 GHz and achieve a value of 116,142 points in Cinebench R23. It surpassed the previous leader, the Ryzen Threadripper 3990X, by over 10 percent.
Elaborate nitrogen cooling necessary
Conventional cooling methods such as air or water cooling are not sufficient to overclock a CPU that consumes up to 280 watts without overclocking. Instead, TSAIK used liquid nitrogen to bring the temperature down to -196 degrees. A voltage of 1.1 volts was applied. Of course, this cooling method is not suitable for everyday use, but it is able to deliver extreme results for a short period of time.
