AMD Ryzen 7 1800X Breaks Cinebench R15 Multi-Thread World Record

AMD – the processor chip manufacturer – officially unveiled details of its new line of Ryzen CPUs at its Tech Day event in San Francisco, CA on Tuesday. It displayed the new Ryzen 7 series processors, an eight-core 16-thread family of CPUs that will feature three SKUs: the 1800X, 1700X, and 1700.

Just a day after the release, AMD’s new Ryzen 7 1800X has broken the world record for performance in CPU benchmarking suite Cinebench R15. The multi-threaded run of Cinebench R15 was completed at 5.2GHz on a Ryzen 7 1800X on all 8 cores with LN2 (liquid nitrogen) cooling that ensured the chip remained operational at -200°C. This model works with a base clock of 3.6 GHz and boost clocks of 4.0 GHz. Other details include an L2 + L3 cache of 20 MB (4 MB + 16 MB) and a TDP of 95W.

The testing not only achieved the amazing clock speed but also managed to get a Cinebench score of 2449 in multi-threaded tests. AMD’s Ryzen 7 1800X scored 2449 Cinebench points at 5.2GHz, beating out the previous world record of 2410.

Considering the price tag of AMD Ryzen 7 1800X is just $499, which is much, much lower price compared to Intel alternatives (i7 6900K going for $1,049), it is truly an amazing feat and a promising sign indeed for how the CPU might compare to its competition.

Processor will be available for pre-order and will receive their purchase starting March 2.

  1. In all honesty i do not see these 8 core chips hitting anywhere near 5ghz using regular water cooling, i see the max overclocks at around 4.5ghz.

  2. If the maximum clock on LN2 is 5.2, the best expected clock speeds on the 1800X would probably be in the order of 4.2 – 4.4 with lots of voltage, on a high end board with high end water.
    The 1700X however retains the 95w TDP and drops 2 cores, so might be possible for higher clocks around the 4.4 – 4.6 mark, though still on high volts with water.
    If the auto boosted speeds are up to 4.1, I would expect something in the region of 4.2 will be the target for 80% of chips.
    Perhaps the 1400X will be an overclocking hero, but at 65w I doubt it will go any faster than 4.0 – 4.2.
    Coming from a long time LN2 and water OCer.
