AMD is just days away from the retail release of their new Ryzen 2000 series processors, with teh flagship Ryzen 7 2700X overclocked before release to a world record of 5884MHz.




The current Ryzen 7 overclocking world record is at 5905MHz, so we're just 21MHz short with this overclock. The world records were verified by HWBot, with the Ryzen 5 1600X sitting at 5905MHz, and the Ryzen 7 1800X at 5803MHz.


The NDA on the new Ryzen 2000 processors lifts on April 19, so we should see some higher overclocks in just a few days time on the new Pinnacle Ridge-based CPUs.
