The Video Cardz and Hardware Luxx websites have today revealed that the new AMD Ryzen Threadripper, the world’s first 32-core consumer CPU, has been overclocked to 5.4 GHz thanks to the overclocking skills of Alva Jonathan aka Lucky_N00b.
Alva has overclocked the processor liquid nitrogen to create extremely low temperatures below -180C, taking the overclocked AMD’s flagship HEDT CPU to staggering 5.4 GHz. The overclocked puts Lucky N00b in a fifth place in global ranking (all CPUs) and in first place for 32-core processors.
“It is said that such frequencies turn Threadripper into an extremely power hungry chip. A 5.3 GHz frequency already requires more than 1000W, Alva did not mention how much power did his CPU need at 5.4 GHz.”
