This is nuts … how a $99 chip can overclock to a whopping 5.92 GHz (almost 6 GHz). AMD … I love you!
Taken from WCCFTech … The performance reviews of AMD’s cheapest Zen 2 based Ryzen CPU, the Ryzen 3 3100, went live yesterday. The reviews showed that the chip is a decent performer and comes fairly close to the once flagship Core i7-7700K from Intel back when they were still releasing quad cores as flagship parts. Renowned overclocker, TSAIK, has pushed the Ryzen 3 3100 to its limit, clocking the chip just under 6 GHz on LN2 cooling.
