    Can you actually run a benchmark at least at those speeds? Or is just boot up and have cpu-z validate?

    When will cpu's hit these speeds without overclocking? 5 years? 10 years?

    My Ryzen doesn't need a state of the art liquid nitrogen setup in order to sound like it's not garbage compared to its own previous generation :D
