The next Gen Ryzen 5 2500X and Ryzen 3 2300X processors still have no launch date, but we're already seeing overclock benchmark numbers leaked online. XFastest, which is Chinese base website somehow managed to gain access to some engineering samples, pushing frequencies well past its default numbers using liquid nitrogen to cool one of these processors.
First up we have the Ryzen 5 2500X, with this particular processor they used a 240mm water cooling setup, which allowed an additional 300MHz of boost clock, upping the frequency ceiling to 4.2GHz. Once done, the website ran the test through Cinbench R15, posting 1,006 scores in the multi-threaded test.
With the Ryzen 3 2300X, overclock numbers are much higher, frequencies pushed past 5.6GHz (that's 563MHz) thanks in part to liquid nitrogen cooling, but overclocking was achieved under unstable conditions. The clock frequency had to be lowered a tad below 5.6GHz, once the test was complete, it scored 895 points.
Though the score seems low in comparison to the other processor, keep in mind the 2500X is considered to be a high-end processor that has eight working threads.
The benchmark scores is a clear indication of what we should expect regarding specs and performance. As with most products leaked on the web prior market release, AMD likely will launch these new processors real soon. Stay tuned.
