Sorry, the Ryzen 9 7950X doesn’t hit 6.3 GHz

If you’re lucky enough to own the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X, you may have noticed that the normally fast chip seems to be hitting near record-breaking boost speeds. Unfortunately, you don’t actually get that much performance out of the chip.

The Ryzen 9 7950X is one of the best processors out there with a boost clock speed of 5.7 GHz, which is already blindingly fast. According to our friends on Tom’s hardware (opens in new tab)however, some users have found that when their PC comes out of sleep mode with the chip, the processor’s clock speed skyrockets to 6.28 GHz, which would be absolutely incredible if it were real.
