ASUS ROG Zenith II Extreme launches with AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3970X and overclockers immediately break records

Nov 26th, 2019

ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today received record-breaking results from overclockers using the ROG Zenith II motherboard, proving that the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3970X processor is the new undisputed leader in 32-core performance.

Leveraging the prodigious power of the Zenith II Extreme, hardcore overclockers were able to shatter a variety of benchmark records at CPU frequencies exceeding 5500 MHz across all cores.

Jeong Soonho, known on HWBot as “safedisk”, rigged his Zenith II Extreme with an Antec 1300 W PSU and a liquid nitrogen cooler from Kingpin Cooling, and smashed three of the most envied records: Geekbench 3, Cinebench R15, and GPUPI for CPU 1B.

Mike Nees (a.k.a. “keeph8n”) cleaned up no less than six different records, including the top benchmarks for Geekbench 4 Multi Core, 3DMark 11 Physics, and both the GPUPI 3.3 1B and GPUPI 3.3 100M categories.

Alexandru Nedelcu from Romania (“[email protected]”) took the HWBot x264 1080p rendering category after winning the G.Skill OC World Cup 2019 previously this year. Roberto Sannino (“rsannino”) cranked his CPU to 5579 MHz and his Galax Hall of Fame DIMMs over 4,000 MHz to shred the wPrime 1024M test in just over 14 seconds.

All records are listed in the table below, and ROG congratulates all the overclockers for their stellar performances!
