  • Gigabyte publishes R9 3950X overclocking guide and benchmarks

    TL;DR
    • Gigabyte achieved a 4.3GHz all core OC 1 hour P95 stable @ 1.4v (4.4ghz R15 stable)
      • This suggests that those juicy 3800X dies are in fact being set aside for the 3950X... or Gigabyte was using a well binned chip.
    • They cooled this using an EK "EK-KIT" P360 and maxed out around 100c.
      • The EK-KIT is basically a custom CPU only 360mm loop.
      • The Tom's article somehow interprets this as "the 16-core Ryzen 9 3950X is as easy to cool as an 8-core part." somehow. It's still a very hot chip.
    • The 3950X scored 3932 stock CB R15, 4384 points at 4.3GHz w/ XMP, and 4475 at 4.4GHz
      • Fast scores, but a short benchmark that favors AMD. Still, these scores are in the ballpark of the 2990WX and 7980XE (and refreshes).

     




    Personally I'm curious as to if this is NDA'd, Tom's historically isn't the kind of place to break NDA. Motherboard manufactures like to leak things but not usually like this. I'm also a bit skeptical about this information being posted without third party reviews. Although it was much different, I'm reminded of the AMD PBO video that alluded to 4.75GHz core speeds. This is obviously much more direct, but I wonder if it was intentional. To grab attention away from Intel's two stage paper launch of the HDET price cut chips perhaps?


    November here we come.
