A Ryzen 9 5950X processor has appeared on the test site Geekbench running on an “all-in-one” Apple iMac Pro. Beyond its high score, the highlight is its frequency of work that rises up to 6 GHz.
The results of the Ryzen platform in sales and market share have been an award for the great work done by AMD in previous years. And a boon for consumers who opt for alternatives. However, they have not been a prodigy in terms of overclocking. AMD is trying to change that perception.
There are two tickets in the Geekbench reference database that they list the Ryzen 9 5950X, albeit not directly, but rather use AMD’s OPN code (100-000000059-37_46 / 35_N), which once tracked in the AMD website takes us to the top of the range of those announced so far for the Zen 3 platform.
To see the actual clock speeds of the sample used for this benchmark, a file containing raw JSON output with all the data recorded during the test must be accessed. As it shows, the CPU clock speed has oscillated between 5.922 and 6.02 GHz.
Benchmarks of the Ryzen 9 3900X running at 5.89 GHz have also been detected and with both, a user has created a comparative table of the results obtained by this Ryzen 9 5950X with the previous model and also with others such as the Intel Core i9 10900K.
This information should be taken with a grain of saltas we do not know the exact configuration of the test machine and its cooling system. It’s hard to imagine an extreme overclocking specialist testing stability on macOS, let alone testing it on a computer as complicated as an Apple all-in-one can be.
From what seems like some Apple or AMD engineer is “having fun” performing tests that in any case point to a great capacity to turn up this Ryzen 9 5950X, remember, a CPU with 16 cores and 32 threads of native processing with frequencies 3.4 GHz base work, 4.9 GHz in turbo mode and unlocked multiplier to facilitate precisely overclocking. It will be impossible for an ordinary user to reach those levels, but there are their possibilities.
