While processors for Intel LGA2066 platform might take some time to enter the market, but a few lucky folks have already got the samples of the chips. Many professional Overclockers even managed to set a number of world records, using a system based on the new HEDT-platform from the “blue giant”. Now, German enthusiast Roman Hartung «Der8auer», managed to break the world record in Cinebench R15 10-core processor.
Intel Core i9-7900X Overclocked to 5929 MHz with LN2
During the extreme Bench session with liquid nitrogen Roman able to disperse the Intel Core i9-7900X processor to 5929 MHz, while retaining the performance of all Cores. Due to this, yet unreleased “10 core processor” managed to complete the Cinebench R15 benchmark with a score of 3262 points. Previously, in the list of 10-core CPU, Core i7-6950X @ 5330 MHz was leading with 2878 points and this record was set by Polish Overclocker Xtreme Addict.
The Overclocker “Der8auer” platform of choice was the ASUS ROG Rampage VI Apex motherboard along with the use of a G.Skill Trident Z DDR4 RAM.
Due to the enhanced architecture, it was inescapable that Skylake-X would perform superior to Broadwell-E. Moreover, it would appear that the enhanced 14nm process node has permitted new chips to Overclock much higher. Skylake-X may well claim many more overclocking titles, in any event until AMD reacts with Threadripper.
