The upcoming Ryzen 9 7950X should be able to boost up to 5.85 GHz and also offer support for AVX-512.
The upcoming Ryzen flagship should be able to reach up to 5.85 GHz in boost.
With the Ryzen 7000 series, AMD is currently preparing for its upcoming CPU generation. The planned flagship in the form of the Ryzen 9 7950X with 16 cores and Zen 4 technology should show the taillights of the Intel competition with higher clock rates. According to a leak, the Ryzen 9 7950X should be able to boost up to 5.85 GHz. However, this F-max boost limit can only be reached with the Precision Boost Overdrive (PBO) activated.
Intel with a slightly lower clock
This high clock would be a record for all chips manufactured in the 5-nanometer process at TSMC. If you manually intervene in the overclocking process, you should be able to achieve even higher speeds. However, this would place very high demands on the cooling. Intel’s flagship Core i9-13900K is only designed for a turbo clock of 5.8 GHz.
AMD supports AVX-512
A pre-series model of the Ryzen 9 7950X also shows in the CPU-Z software that these high clock rates have not yet been reached. The CPU currently has a clock rate of 4,848 MHz on all 16 cores. Details about the level 2 cache and the voltage present cannot be read out either. What is interesting, however, is that the Ryzen 9 7950X appears to support the AVX-512 command extension. This could make AMD’s processors more attractive than Intel’s counterparts in certain productivity scenarios. Earlier this year, Intel removed the instruction extension from the Alder Lake processors via a microcode update, although it would actually be available. For PC gamers and in everyday use, however, the function is unimportant.
