The professional overclocker TSAIK has been able to raise the frequency of two of the new AMD Ryzen 2 processors, the Ryzen 7 2700X and the Ryzen 5 2600X to the impressive frequency of 5.88 GHz with overclocking. This is more than 1 GHz above the Boost frequencies of both AMD processor models and augurs good experiences with them.
With the official launch of the new AMD Ryzen 2 processors just around the corner (remember it will be on April 19 when we can buy them officially), interesting data about these new processors, and their capabilities and performance are still leaking . And it is normal that they keep doing it, given that many users want to know how they are going to perform, and if the improvements implemented in these models will be worth it when it comes to buying them, or if, on the contrary, it would be better to wait to the Ryzen 3 next year.
Anyway, it is clear that there are certain aspects of the current Ryzen architecture that should be improved. Especially, the compatibility with RAM (which is not exactly stellar) and the maximum frequencies to which it can work, currently limited to 3,200 MHz. And in this regard, it seems that the new memory controller does a much better job that the one that makes the current model that assemble this range of processors.
Not only have 5.88 GHz been achieved with overclocking in the processor, but it has also been possible to upload a RAM memory kit up to 4.5 GHz, a much higher frequency than the controller is currently capable of. And, although they are still quite far from the maximum frequencies supported by Intel controllers, it is clear that it is an important step in the right direction from AMD.
On the other hand, speaking of the overclock to AMD Ryzen 2700X and 2600X processors, although the values of the frequencies that the TSAIK overclocker has achieved are, frankly, impressive, it is also true that these values will never be usable for a 24/7 use. Since as a cooling method it has used liquid nitrogen and had to raise the Vcore of the processor to 1,768 V, which are values that are VERY above the maximum voltage values that AMD recommends for its processors. The closer we get to the official release date, the more we want to see how these new processors work.
