It was reported on the Internet that the Ryzen 7 5800X3D does not support overclocking, and AMD asked the manufacturer to cancel the overclocking support for the Ryzen 7 5800X3D in UEFI/BIOS. AMD technical marketing director Robert Hallock also said in an interview with the media that the Ryzen 7 5800X3D does not support overclocking in the traditional sense, there will be a lock that restricts overclocking, and users cannot adjust the frequency or voltage. In fact, some netizens have overclocked the Ryzen 7 5800X3D recently, constantly pushing up the frequency.
Recently, the overclocker TSAIK and the MSI team cooperated to use the MEG X570 GODLIKE motherboard to increase the clock of the Ryzen 7 5800X3D to 5141.78 MHz, which corresponds to an FSB of 113.01 MHz and a multiplier of 45.5. Even more surprising is that the core voltage is only 1.2 V. As MSI’s top motherboard, MEG X570 GODLIKE has the impressive overclocking capability, this time using 1.G5T2 BIOS based on AGESA 126.96.36.199 Patch C. AMD is rumored to have a special overclocking BIOS that is expected to be available to some motherboard makers soon.
Although the overclocking of the Ryzen 7 5800X3D is very exciting, it is not something that ordinary players can control, and it is not recommended to try it easily, which can easily cause damage to the CPU. Unfortunately, after overclocking the Ryzen 7 5800X3D to 5.141 GHz, TSAIK only turned on CPU-Z and did not run any benchmarks.
The Ryzen 7 5800X3D using the Vermeer-X core has 8 cores and 16 threads, with a base clock of 3.4 GHz and a boost clock of 4.5 GHz, which are 400 MHz and 200 MHz lower than the Ryzen 7 5800X, respectively. The Ryzen 7 5800X3D is the first and so far the only consumer CPU with 3D Vertical Cache (3D V-Cache) technology. An additional 64MB of 7nm SRAM cache increases the L3 cache capacity to 96MB, and the CPU will be available on April 20.
