It was only last week when the Internet was abuzz with an overclocker taking an AMD Ryzen 7 1800X processor and revving it all the way to 5.2GHz on LN2 cooling. That paved the way for a new Cinebench R15 world record, though that record no longer stands. Now barely a week later, an overclocker has pushed a presumably delidded Ryzen 7 1800X processor to 5.8GHz, the highest officially recorded clockspeed to date for a Ryzen CPU. And that Cinebench R15 score? Somebody has topped that, too.The new frequency record was set by none other than Der8auer, a renowned overclocker who recently posted a video... Read more...

The excitement surrounding Ryzen is at a fever pitch, and for good reason—every indication up to this point is that Ryzen is the real deal and will make AMD competitive again in the high-end market. There is still another week to go before Ryzen reaches retail availability (the top three Ryzen CPUs are up for pre-order, though) but in the meantime, an overclocked Ryzen 7 1800X has purportedly set a new world record in Cinebench. A group of overclockers doused the chip in LN2 and then cranked the voltage way up. That allowed them to push all the the Ryzen 7 1800X processor well beyond stock, while... Read more...
AMD was hoping its Ryzen architecture would return the company to prominence in the enthusiast market and give power users something other than Intel brand chips to consider. The former remains to be seen, but the latter is already taking place. Following AMD's Ryzen Tech Day event yesterday in which the Sunnyvale chip designer announced pre-order availability of its top three Ryzen processors, consumers wasted no time making all three SKUs best sellers on Amazon. Amazon's list of best selling CPUs is now headlined by AMD'z Ryzen 7 1700X. The retail boxed processor is available to pre-order for... Read more...
