AMD Ryzen 3000 CPUs Overclock At 5 GHz, 5 GHz Anniversary Edition CPU Coming In 2020
The overclocking details of the AMD Ryzen 3000 CPUs originated from Chipell where one of the members, One Month who previously leaked about the Ryzen 3000 APUs. According to the latest information, AMD Ryzen 3000 CPUs can overclock at 4.8 GHz across all core. And, the next generation CPUs are also capable of overclocking at 5.0 GHz.

The information also revealed that although the 5.0 GHz is doable, achieving it is challenging since it would require higher voltage power. Earlier, it was leaked that AMD 16 core Ryzen 3000 CPU needed 1.572V to achieve 4.25 GHz. Moreover, when compared to its competitor the Intel Core i9-9900K, the AMD Ryzen 3000 CPUs is much faster when overclocked to 4.4 GHz in Cinebench.
Also, the 5 GHz boost frequency of the single core AMD Ryzen 3000 CPUs is achievable with the silicon types hitting the mark with ease. The information further disclosed that a 4.5 GHz overclock can be obtained by utilizing around 1.35V. This is something that the leaker is talking about when he said that the community has something to be excited about the new AMD Ryzen 3000 CPUs.
The leaker also shared that the memory of AMD Ryzen 3000 CPUs is slow and running very loose. It is possible that the leaker could be referring to the sample because so far, the results that we have seen reveal that the units have really fast memory support with the latest X570 boards.

Meanwhile, there is another set of leaks that claim that AMD is currently working on a new variant in AMD Ryzen 3000 CPUs line up that will be released in 2020. According to leaker BitsandChips, the special variant might be launched in 2020 and will be released as an Anniversary Edition. In 2020, the company will celebrate two decades of AMD Athlon CPU, which was the first-ever CPU to reach 1 GHz.

While the core count of an upcoming special variant chip was not disclosed, it appears that the leak is highly possible. AMD could utilize heavily binned dies since it is a special edition and will not be mass produced. The special edition chip is believed to have higher TDP, which is approximately 125W.This could be a good move for the company since its rival company Intel is now releasing its own special edition variant for two consecutive years.
