Der8auer puts a Ryzen 7 2700X at 6GHz on an Asus Crosshair VII Hero

Earlier this week, the Ryzen 7 2700X was reported to have reached a frequency of 5.8 GHz, a barrier that has been overcome by the famous der8auer. This also beats the overclocking record of the first generation of Ryzen processors, which was at 5.9 GHz on the 1600X six-core.

For this feat, an advanced Asus Crosshair VII Hero X470 motherboard was used, which has allowed the Ryzen 7 2700X to reach 6 GHz in its eight cores, which has earned it the world record in Geekbench 3 and GPUPI, which was in the hands of the Core i7 7820X based on Intel’s Skylake-X architecture.

Of course, the use of liquid nitrogen, which has kept the processor at a very low operating temperature, has been essential to achieving this. der8auer has posted a video showing his new feat.

Ryzen 7 2700X is an eight-core, sixteen-wire processor, based on the Zen+ architecture and manufactured by Global Foundries with its new 12 nm FinFET process, a slight improvement over the first generation of Ryzen processors, which will serve to prepare the foundations for the arrival of the third generation next year, which will already be based on the Zen2 architecture manufactured at 7 nm.
