During AMD's Threadripper 7000 launch event, the media got a glimpse of the platform's capabilities as its flagship CPU shattered many world records in a brief overclocking session. However, the platform's potential is far greater than what was seen. Recently, AMD released benchmark results from their in-house overclocker, Sampson, who just set three Cinebench world records.
As noted by Wccftech, the AMD Ryzen Threadripper Pro 7995WX CPU, a Zen 4-based processor with 96 cores, was used to break various Cinebench world records. Sampson used the Asus WS TRX50 Sage motherboard and four 64GB DDR5-6400 RAM modules from G.Skill for the overclocking session.

The most impressive part is that Sampson broke the records using an air-cooler, with temperatures reaching as high as 102°C. The cooler was the IceGiant ProSiphon Elite CPU cooler, featuring a quad-fan design at full throttle. This was essential as the CPU consumed 976W to 980W in this configuration.
With a score of 167K points on Cinebench R23, the TR Pro 7995WX is 33% faster than AMD's previous top-scorer (overclocked), the Zen 3-based TR Pro 5995WX with 64 cores. Furthermore, it outperformed Intel's top Xeon W9-3495X CPU (overclocked), with the 96-core Threadripper being 22% faster. On Cinebench R20 and R15 multi-core tests, the overclocked Ryzen Threadripper chip scored 61,538 and 23,697 points, scoring over 50% higher than the same processor with stock settings.
While Sampson has already set three world records, the story doesn't end there. He teased a possible comeback on November 21st with even better results, potentially using liquid nitrogen this time.
