Using Liquid Nitrogen Cooling System (LN2), Intel Core i9-7900X 10-Core, 20-Thread Based on Skylake Architecture CPU Breached 6.016GHz
Initially, being the only Core i9 processor below the $1,000 mark gives more attention to Intel Core i9-7900X from many tech experts and analysts. Yet, this 10-core, 20-thread Core i9 processor based on Intel Skylake architecture is not just about price, it's also about performance. And based on the latest overclocking result, the Intel Core i9-7900X has breached the 6 GHz mark!
According to HWBot user SOFOS1990, the Intel Core i9-7900X clocked at 6.016 GHz, scored 12,189.52 points which good for first place finishes (UGP, UHP, GTPP and HTPP) among 10-core CPUs, the highest ever single processor world record. Of course, this is with the help from Liquid Nitrogen (LN2) cooling system.
The Intel Core i9-7900X has a base clock of 3.3 GHz, Turbo Boost 2.0 at 4.3 GHz, and reaching its peak at 4.5 GHz using Turbo Boost Max 3.0. But using a Liquid Nitrogen (LN2) cooling system, it reaches clock speed of 6,016MHz (+82.30%).
Back in May at the "Performance Matters" event held in Taipei, the same Intel Core i9-7900X was overclocked to 5.8 GHz using LN2 as posted by WCCFTech. This previous record was reached using the ASUS ROG Rampage VI Apex X299 motherboard. But for the latest feat made using the Intel Core i9-7900X, the GIGABYTE Aorus X299 SOC Champion motherboard was used.
According to Motley Fool, Intel Skylake 6- to 10-core processors were scheduled for release back in June; the 12-core processors are scheduled by August, while the 14-, 16- and 18-core processors are scheduled by October. Check out the complete lineup of Skylake processors as posted by WCCFTech:
