AMD Ryzen 5 1600X at 5.9 GHz

New record from der8auer

We have covered der8auer breaking records in the past and apparently the German overclocker Roman Hartung did it again. This time he has pushed a new AMD new Ryzen 5 1600X CPU to 5.9 GHz using an ASUS Crosshair VI Hero motherboard and liquid nitrogen cooling. This overclock was achieved with a bus speed of 130 MHz and a multiplier of 45.5.

As we mentioned before, the system was based on an ASUS Crosshair VI Hero motherboard and an AMD Ryzen 5 1600X CPU, which was pushed to 5.9 GHz. Aside of that there was G.Skill DDR4 memory set to work at DDR4-3000 using CL12 timings. Since AMD’s Ryzen CPUs have been available for a while, we expect to see even even higher clock speeds from other overclockers soon. In addition the motherboard's BIOS might still not be completely ready for extreme overclocking and during the upcoming weeks we will see several updates from manufacturers.

This is “only” a CPU frequency score but still all cores and threads were enabled. In addition der8auer also ran Cinebench, GPU PI and Geekbench. In all these four benchmarks he achieved “global firsts” overtaking all - more expensive - hexacore processors from Intel. The Ryzen 5 1600X appears to be a very promising CPU especially since the price is about 280 Euro on Geizhals.

Furthermore with new BIOS updates and extensive tweaking, we hope to see an AMD Ryzen overclocking guide from Roman himself or other overclockers, which should help consumers achieve the best performance in combination with their CPUs. We congratulate Roman “der8auer” Hartung to another great score.
