AMD Ryzen 5000

processors have just been launched, and we’re already seeing some seriously impressive results as overclockers get their hands on them – and it looks like AMD’s latest CPUs are smashing world records all over the place.

As

Wccftech reports

, the

AMD Ryzen 9 5950X

has achieved possibly the most impressive feat, with Taiwanese overclocker TSAIK managing to hit an incredible 6.35GHz across all of the CPU’s 16 cores – a new world record.

That is an absolutely incredible record, and was achieved using liquid nitrogen cooling and the MSI MEG X570 GODLIKE motherboard.

Meanwhile, overclocker Der8auer managed to hit a very respectable 5.85GHz with the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X, and managed 14,275 points in the Cinebench R20 benchmark, which is one of the highest in the world.

They posted a video on their achievement, which can be seen below.

Other records

The number of world records smashed by the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X continue to grow, including world records in

WPRIME 1024M

,

Cinebench R20

(beating Der8auer’s already-impressive score) and

Geekbench 4

.

Impressively, it’s not just the Ryzen 9 5950X that’s breaking world records. Each CPU in the Ryzen 5000 series has notched up world records already.

The 12-core

AMD Ryzen 9 5900X

has smashed records in

PIFAST

,

WIPRIME

,

Cinebench R15

and

Geekbench 4

, amongst others.

The eight-core AMD Ryzen 7 5800X has hit records in

WPRIME

,

GPUPI

,

Geekbench 3

and

Cinebench R15

, well as many others.

Even the six-core AMD Ryzen 5 5600X got in on the action, with records in

Geekbench 4

,

WPRIME

,

Cinebench R15

and

GPUIP 1B

.

There are many more records being broken by all the new CPUs, and Wccftech does a great job rounding them up.

The fact that every CPU in AMD’s new lineup is a record breaker, and has managed to topple so many after such a short period of time, is truly impressive. Intel is going to have to pull something

very

special out of its bag to counter this.
