The chip that made this new record is the Ryzen 7 1800X. The rather impressive feat by the 1800X was revealed via a video posted by YouTuber Austin Evans which has since been removed. Luckily for us, another YouTuber managed to capture a few shots from the video which then he reuploaded, allowing us a sneak peek.

The 1800X’s record run was conducted by a team of overclockers who put the chip through a Cinebench R15. The voltage was cranked all the way up to an insane 1.875V as the chip was being cooled to -200-degree Celsius with LN2.

At the said speeds, the chip pulled off a Cinebench score of 2449 points in the multi-thread tests. The previous world-record for the same was 2410 points.
