News AMD's Ryzen 9 7950X Zen 4 CPU Reportedly Peaks At 5.85 GHz

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.

5ghz is possible on mobile but only when 1-2 cores are running and likely only 45w variant.
 
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....

All interesting and good; but for those with the extra $$ and able to wait, V-cache is coming to Zen 3 sooner rather than later. And the gains over base Zen 3 will be very significant.

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.
