    Cryptic rumour points to air cooled AMD Ryzen hitting 5GHz

    A French print magazine published this statement - but it was hidden in binary code.
    Read more.

    I'm going to call BS. These cpus will NOT reach 5GHz on air. Highend water loop maybe and only for benchmark test. My 2p FWIW.

    I reckon the 4C/8Ts hit ~5GHz, that wouldn't be too unexpected. I don't think the same applies to 8Cs and 8C/8Ts though, if they could get that high on air then AMD would be selling them at a lot higher stock speeds than 3.4GHz.

    Why not? Some of AMD's Richland APUs could reach 5GHz on air as well as a handful of "lucky" FX 8350s at 5GHz on air too. I imagine the lower spec Zens should be able to match this and do so more readily.

    Some (14nm) Broadwell could reach 5Ghz on air so it's not beyond the realms of possibility that Ryzen (also 14nm) could reach similar levels, especially as Ryzen's a newer design than Intel aging Core design.

    Re: Cryptic rumour points to air cooled AMD Ryzen hitting 5GHz

    How did they cool it? Does AM4 use the same cooler mount as an earlier AMD mobo, or was this the wraith cooler in action?

    Well to say its a 95w TDP it should certainly have some thermal headroom, only time will tell.

    Re: Cryptic rumour points to air cooled AMD Ryzen hitting 5GHz

    5ghz isn't beyond what a cpu should be able to do, g3258's can hit 4.4 on air however ...I doubt the retail version of zen will this will be as good and also the image used was an intel chip.
    I think it's someone having a joke.

    Re: Cryptic rumour points to air cooled AMD Ryzen hitting 5GHz

    Well it was interesting watching this topic on the net. It was (as far as I can tell) a single core of a Rysen chip that was pushed to 5GHz+ on air. To me that doesn't count, I'll explain why. A single core is not the chip, a cajouled and nursed figure cannot be classed as indicative of what's routinely possible so, for me Rysen can't do 5GHz on air. I resist marketing hyperbole with a passion so I call BS still on this as just that.

    Don't get me wrong I'm 'chomping at the bit' to build a kickasss AMD Rysen/Vega build but I think 4.6-4.8GHz on a good AIO (I'll even settle for 4.5GHz) will be fantastic, take my money. Just think a Rysen 8/8t core chip with a 4k class Vega graphics card for around £800-£900. I hope AMD can get there, so so cool.

    Re: Cryptic rumour points to air cooled AMD Ryzen hitting 5GHz

    Yea I've been reading it was a single core and although that's not indicative of what we'll get when the chips are released it's still a good indicator, that a single core can reach 5Ghz points to silicon that responds well to overclocking, granted in the real world we probably won't be hitting 5Ghz, however 4Ghz upwards seems a reasonable expectation.

    Re: Cryptic rumour points to air cooled AMD Ryzen hitting 5GHz

    I would guess around 4.2ghz it would overtake my 3570k (4.5ghz) on IPC which is most likely possible considering it probably turbos around there.

    With that 4 extra cores and a total of 16 threads will make it better in every other way too, will probably be easier to cool too.

    The more I hear the more I like they idea of going Ryzen, i juts hope it lives up to my price/performance expectations.

    Look at that box of Ryzen CPUs! One of them has 4300 marked on them.

    From what i can gather, it's the exact same mounting solution as AM2 to AM3+ and FM1 to FM3...

    So completely compatible it seems. And thats a good thing, as you have a huge catalog of existing coolers to choose from.

    Don't get too excited, I'm pretty sure that is an old stock photo they have used before from a big cpu test. The 4300 is a core-2 duo?
