5ghz is possible on mobile but only when 1-2 cores are running and likely only 45w variant.If that rumor is true, then 7950x will be in 55-70% faster than the previous one, and AMD will take the performance crown. I hope its not red herring or golden sample. We've seen it tie with 13900k on engineering sample at ~5.5Ghz. Oh please 6.01GHZ on 7700X.
It also 100% mean we will get 5.0+ on mobile chips which is great.
Knowing Intel, they won't let that happen. Thus, I feel the rumored 350W TDP unlock is likely how Intel wants to win back the clockspeed race. What a dumb way to compete.7950X Clocked higher than Raptor Lake, potentially? Interesting.... and, single or two core clock workload speeds are almost irrelevant in gaming, so, it will be interesting to see actual all-core clocks of both cpus when proper comparisons can be made about a month after both are launched. . ...
The average and min frame rates in a variety of popular games will ultimately tell the tale....
Well, the top max is top max. Reality most like will be something like 5.5Ghz unless you use water cooling and can get to 5.7 with one core. That 5.85 is golden sample and AMD has not said that cpu can go that high. Only that 5.7 is possible...oh yes... as if I trust AMD claims on boost freq
