AMD's new Ryzen 9 7950X "Zen 4" processor has been pushed to new limits just days before its official retail launch, with the new Zen 4 flagship CPU being pumped up to an incredible 7.2GHz on a single-core, and 6.5GHz all-core OC.

We know to use a high-end 360mm AIO cooler with AMD's new flagship Ryzen 9 7950X processor if you want to hit 5.7GHz but if you wanted to reach 5.8GHz and above on the Ryzen 9 7950X then you need to use some serious cooling. TUM_APISAK posted some CPU-Z validation screenshots of the new Ryzen 9 7950X hitting 7.2GHz and 6.GHz, check them out below.

A single Zen 4 core was overclocked to 7247MHz (7.2GHz) with 1.506V and chilled with LN2 cooling, while 6.5GHz all-core was reached with a little less voltage -- 1.465V -- but the same LN2 cooling. Not too shabby at all... 16 cores and 32 threads of next-gen Zen 4 CPU power at 6.5GHz, but not everyone has LN2 cooling.

AMD's new flagship Ryzen 9 7950X processor is a hot mofo on its own, running at up to 95C while sucking down 230W of power... so you will not just want, but rather need a high-end 360mm AIO cooler for your new CPU. AMD isn't the only one either, with Intel's new Core i9-13900K "Raptor Lake" CPU running at 82C with a 360mm AIO cooler (but still using copious amounts of power, too... in fact more, up to 270W). Leakers have teased that Intel's new Core i9-13900K runs at 5.3GHz all-core and stays under 85C.

We are hearing more and more about AMD's new Ryzen 7000 series CPUs through leaks, but you'll be able to buy them... wait for it... on September 27, just hours away. We should hear more in the next few hours as the NDA embargo for AMD's new Zen 4 desktop CPUs lifts on September 26, where we'll have reviews live on TweakTown the second the NDA is live.

Intel's new 13th Gen Core "Raptor Lake" CPUs are also around the corner, with all of the details arriving during Intel's upcoming "Innovation" event on September 27. We should expect everything we need to know about Raptor Lake and the new Z790 chipset then... the last couple of weeks, and the next couple of months are going to be mega-exciting for technology enthusiasts.
