We have just reported about the two new AMD APUs, i.e. CPUs with their own graphics unit (IGP): the Ryzen 5 5600G and Ryzen 7 5700G. Both CPUs are an alternative for beginners in the gaming area, who can put together a very cheap PC, especially in view of the currently still very high graphics card prices. Not yet on the market, but already good for a big headline, is a “small” new APU from AMD, the Ryzen 3 5300G. Because as the PC Games Hardware reports, the overclocking specialist Safedisk was able to overclock the processor to 5.52 gigahertz breaking the records for three quad-core tests. The processor managed the “Y-Cruncher” test with around 5.4 gigahertz in 53.681 seconds – thus it surpasses the NoMS overclocker, which is now in second place, whose overclocked Ryzen 3 Pro 5350G was almost 1.3 seconds slower.

Ryzen 3 5300G breaks records

In the Geekbench benchmark, the maximum clock speed of 5.52 gigahertz achieved by Safedisk came into its own and provided 32,200 points – about 560 points more than the Ryzen 3 Pro 5350G from NoMs, which previously took first place in quad-core CPUs. In the GPUPU 1B test, Safedisk secured first place with 2 minutes and 2.651 seconds – here, too, the clock rate was 5.52 gigahertz. Safedisk used liquid nitrogen to achieve the high cycle rate. The mainboard used was a Asus ROG Crosshair VIII Extreme, which has only been listed in the PC Games Hardware price comparison since the beginning of August and is not yet available. The RAM came from G.Skill (16GB, DDR4-2066 with CL14-14-14-28-1T).
