Two entries of the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X have been spotted on the Geekbench database. One of these entries shows the AMD processor was running on in an iMac Pro and it was clocked at 6.0GHz, which is quite the impressive figure.
The two entries spotted on Geekbench (1, 2) by @TUMAPISAK were confirmed by the same to be of an engineering sample of the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X by crossing the OPN code on Geekbench with the OPN code shown in the official product page. The AMD Ryzen 9 5950X core clock speed reached a peak of 6023MHz, as seen on the gb5 files shared by @TUMAPISAK.

The entries show a single score of 2022/2024, and a multi-core score of 17877/17448. Compared to the Geekbench entry of an overclocked Ryzen 9 3900X, clocked at 5.88GHz also running on an iMacPro, there’s a ≈20% uplift in single-core performance. For comparison, @harukaze5719 made a chart showing these scores compared to a stock Ryzen 9 3950X, Core i9-10900K, Core i9-10910, and a Core i7-1165G7, showing the Ryzen 9 5950X leading the pack.
AMD has scheduled the launch of the Ryzen 5000 series for November 5th, pricing the Ryzen 9 5950X at $799.
