Early Zen 3 clock speeds leak - Per-Core Overclocking coming to Ryzen 4000?

Could per-core overclocking enable 5GHz single-core boost speeds?

Read more about Zen 3's early Ryzen clocks and per-core overclocking potential.

I wonder whether this means that if you bought a 5950X at 16 cores you could overclock 4-8 of those cores to the highest possible speeds for gaming, music production, and anything that benefits more from per core speed. And then when you want all your cores running at their highest speeds, just swap your BIOS profile. That would be spectacular.

I am hoping that they made improvements to CPU's internal latencies and RAM latency. It is the latency that is hampering AMD CPUs, not just raw frequency. Intel's Ring Bus is the order of magnitude faster than anything AMD has. Even X299 chips had significantly lower latencies than AMD.

It comes as a downside of chiplet design but there is certainly a lot of space for improvement.
