Indonesian overclocker IvanCupa had some fun with AMD's new Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX processor. With the help of liquid nitrogen (LN2), he managed to clock all of the chip's cores to 5955.4MHz, representing an almost 100 percent overclock considering the 2990WX has an all-core base clockspeed of 3GHz. Pretty nice feat.
The overclocking effort was achieved bu user IvanCupa on MSI's X399 MEG Creation motherboard paired with 8 GB of single-channel DDR4 memory (easier on the CPU to support than if more channels were populated). We'll see whether this chip can be taken even closer to the stratosphere than this - remember it's only been a few days since the chip's release to the wild.
