According to data, in some markets, AMD’s best-selling processor is the Ryzen 7 5800X3D. Because of the massive cache design and the good reputation of Zen3, it has become the most cost-effective game god U. However, the German god Igor’s Lab accidentally discovered that there is a bug in the overclocking software of MSI Center, ASUS, Gigabyte and even ASRock, which allows the Ryzen 7 5800X3D to be overclocked and boosted almost instantly. Let the processor hang up.
It stands to reason that for the standard version of the Ryzen 5000X, 1.3~1.4V is considered a safe voltage, but the problem is that the design of the Ryzen 7 5800X3D is different. After being superimposed on the 96MB L3 cache, the heat dissipation is limited. The frequency is very conservative, and the limit voltage is lowered from 1.5V to 1.35V.
According to the test, these third-party software allows unlimited frequency modulation of Ryzen 7 5800X3D overload, such as 1.55V, 80 times (8GHz), the final result can be imagined.
There is a view that in addition to updating the third-party software, the 3D cache version of AMD Ryzen (including Ryzen 7000X3D) should be identified and overclocked safely. At the same time, AMD should also update the AGESA microcode as soon as possible to prevent the above-mentioned Phenomenon.
