Intel

Ivy Bridge at 7.2 GHz

08.05.2013: Not even one month before Intel launches their new Haswell processors, the two overclockers Mad222 and John222 from HKEPC, came across an Intel Core i7-3770K CPU which was good for a new world record.

A closer look at the screenshot shows, that the two overclockers provided their Intel Core i7-3770K CPU with 1.908 volt to get the maximum clock speed of 7'208.19 MHz. Another thing that is quite impressive is the BCLK of 114.42 MHz, which they were able to hit with this CPU and the Gigabyte Z77X-UP7 motherboard. Last but not least there is the number of activated cores and threads which is unusually high. The guys were able to reach these clock frequencies with four cores and four threads activated. This makes us wonder if there is still some potential slumbering within this CPU's transitors. Maybe running this chip with 1 core 1 thread enable will allow even higher frequencies.
