In what was supposed to be a budget entry-level offering from AMD, it seems the Ryzen 3 3100 is capable of reaching much higher frequencies than we initially thought.
How Was This Achieved?
In order to reach this high frequency, TSAIK used a Vcore of 1.45 volts of power as well as liquid nitrogen cooling. A base clock of 100 MHz was used and a multiplier of 59.25 was used to achieve the clock speed that was nearing almost 6 GHz.
There was just one 8 GB memory module used during this overclock that was running underclocked at 1600 MHz. As well as this, an MSI MAG X570 TOMAHAWK WIFI motherboard was used to achieve these speeds.
Another record that TSAIK holds is the highest overclock speed for the Ryzen 9 3950X, also achieved on the MSI MAG X570 TOMAHAWK WIFI motherboard which was recorded at 6.041 GHz.
Impressive Potential For Budget Offerings
This is great news for those who are looking at picking up an entry-level CPU. Although you’re not likely to reach the same impressive speeds as demonstrated above, the potential is surely there.
The Ryzen 3 3100 features a 3.6 GHz base clock and a 3.9 GHz boost clock. It also comes with 16 MB of L3 cache as well as a 65 W TDP.
