AMD's upcoming Ryzen CPU could be a great overclocker, something we were teased at during AMD's recent Tech Summit event in Sonoma, California - but now we're hearing that Ryzen might easily hit 5GHz... on air cooling.
The news is coming in a very cryptic way, with Hexus reporting that "the most stirring extra piece of information is mysteriously hidden inside a binary string printed nonchalantly above a feature image on page 10 of the magazine's printed article"... something you can see above.
Reddit user lolwut996633 noticed it, and when put into a binary to plain text converter, it reads:
This would lead us to believe that the Canard PC article was teasing Ryzen is capable of 5GHz on air, which is damn impressive - because what will we expect for water cooling, and gasp - LN2?!
