It looks like Intel’s Raptors and AMD’s Zen 4 will battle it out for the highest boost.
According to the latest leaks, we know that the Ryzen 9 7950X boosts to 5.7 GHz. However, there have been rumors that the maximum limit (Fmax) is slightly higher and the processor can thus jump up to 5.85 GHz. This is exactly the proverbial fist higher than the competing Raptor Lake i9-13900K, which performed with a boost to 5.8 GHz.
Fmax is a value integrated into the processor and tells it how far it can go with the frequency. It depends on load and cooling, so the potential for 6 GHz would be there with some manual tuning and good CPU cooling. The handyman who came up with this gossip also showed a screenshot from the CPU-Z program, but there the CPU is running at 4.85 GHz. However, the utility does not detect the processor as an ES (engineering sample) and shows the codename Raphael, but other data is still missing. These will of course be added to the utility together with the introduction of processors.
However, there is no need to despair, in a few hours AMD will show us what the new architecture is capable of, they will flash new products and satisfy eager users with upgrades. The entire event will be streamed live on AMD Youtube channel. Unfortunately, it will be 1:00 am on August 30th in our time. So if you don’t want to sleep tonight, you can wait for the news.
