AMD has now officially released their new Ryzen 7 2700X processor, and within 24 hours we're seeing new overclocking world records with Der8auer and Neo overclocking the Ryzen 7 2700X to incredible heights.

The team completed the massive overclock at the ASUS ROG Taiwan HQ, where they used LN2 and the ASUS ROG Crosshair VII Hero motherboard to drive the Ryzen 7 2700X to a huge 6GHz, on all 8C/16T of Pinnacle Ridge processing power. The team used 1.85V of power, and isn't perfectly stable, but it shows the improvements that AMD made over the first-gen Ryzen CPUs.

AMD's new Ryzen 7 2700X was cooled to an incredible -190C with LN2, as the refreshed Ryzen chip doesn't have an OC bug meaning that it can be driven to super sub-zero temps.

Some interesting things were discovered when the Ryzen 7 2700X was overclocked to 5.7GHz (1.55V) and memory at 1.95V, as it broke 8-core CPU world records, and even beat similiar 8-core Intel Skylake-X processors 400MHz faster at 6.1GHz... impressive stuff, AMD.
