Last weekend, a famous frontier breaker Takukou set a record on the HwBot x265 app when he scored his own results with an AMD Ryzen 9 3900XT processor using liquid helium, but that score or record was short-lived. Whereas, a few hours from now, a member of tomshardware Splave took first place, beating his record by a hair. But the most impressive was actually not only the result, but that Splave was not using liquid helium, but rather liquid nitrogen.
The competition is simple: to overclock the Ryzen 9 3900XT processor so it runs stably, run the HWBot x265 test tool and record the frame rate the processor will reach. Of course, the person with the highest frame rate wins ……. Honestly, the difference between the two competitors was very small. Takukuo achieved a score of 34.26 fps with the processor running at a frequency of 5624 MHz with a rate of 1.728 volts, while Splave achieved a result of 34.78 fps on its processor at a frequency of 5650 MHz at 1.50 volts.
There are different reasons for different results, as well as for the frequencies and voltages of the breaking speed. Overclockers use different motherboards, different memory, different PSU power supplies, and different environmental conditions. It is also worth noting that no two processors are originally the same, even if they are of the same model, as it is also possible that Splave is blessed with a slightly higher-quality piece of silicone, which makes its results better.
