The 16-core AMD Ryzen 9 5950X has been spotted in the Geekbench database, which suggests the CPU might overclock to 6GHz.
The 2 entries, identified by Twitter tipster TUM_APISAK, shows the flagship Zen 3 CPU running in an “iMac Pro,” an unusual overclocking environment. As noted by Wccftech, it’s most likely a Hackintosh setup booted with macOS 10.15.7, rather then an actual iMac Pro.
Both entries, which note the AMD Ryzen 5950X by its OPN code, show the CPU performing at clock speeds of 6GHz. The Geekbench “. gb5” file shows that the processor’s frequency swing in between 5931MHz and 6023MHz throughout the test.

If if was in reality achieved at all, it’s most likely that this clock speed was accomplished using advanced cooling–. When it comes to the efficiency criteria, the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X running at 6GHz scored 2,024 points in single and 17,448 points in multi-threaded tests. By comparison, the Intel Core i9-10900K scored 1,412 and 11,095 in the exact same tests, respectively.
A Ryzen 9 3900X processor was likewise spotted performing at 5.88 GHz in a macOS environment, and scored 1,696 and 15,830 points in the multi-threaded and single tests, respectively. Benchmarks put together by Harukaze5719 likewise show that, based upon these leaked ratings, AMD Ryzen 9 5950X is around 10%faster than the 12-core Ryzen 3900X, and around 20% much faster in single-threaded tests. AMD’s Ryzen 5000 desktop CPUs will be introducing on November 5. The 16-core, 32-thread Ryzen 9 5950X, will retail for
