Overclocking the 2990WX with Liquid Nitrogen

AMD's overclockers went at it to try and overclock the CPU over 5GHz on all cores to run CINEBENCH. That's right; 32-cores and 64-threads at over 5.0GHz on all cores. They used liquid nitrogen (down to -196C, but maybe not that low depending on how the CPU likes it), which is more intense than Intel's 28-core chiller demo (close to 0C, or maybe a bit lower), but either way they demolished Intel's CINEBENCH score.

Intel's 5GHz on all 28-cores hit around 7334 points in CINEBENCH, and AMD's 32-cores hit 7618 at 5.1GHz on all 32-cores. However, we believe they can score over 8000 points, as this isn't their top run and was just done live on CPUs that we are told weren't binned closely. Either way, this performance is crazy high and impressive, and we can't wait to see how things turn out at launch! Stay tuned, we will be doing a Facebook-live Unboxing later today.
