Core i7-3770K Cracks 6.616 GHz Utilizing 63.0x Multiplier

Intel's upcoming Core "Ivy Bridge" processors for overclockers, namely the Core i7-3770K, and Core i5-3570K, feature multiplier values previously unavailable for Core "Sandy Bridge" series. Chinese proverclocker x-powerx800pro scraped 6.616 GHz utilizing a base clock multiplier value of 63.0x, a clock speed of 6584.86 MHz (104.52 x 63) was validated using the same setup. These clock speeds were backed by core voltages such as 1.056V, and cooled by extreme cooling. The test-bench included a GIGABYTE Z77X-UD5H, 2x 2 GB G.Skill DDR3-2133 MHz memory, and Corsair AX1200W PSU. These clock speeds were found to be Pi-stable, with 6.511 GHz yielding SuperPi 1M timing of 5.585s.

Ivy Bridge gets 95W TDP, worse overclocker than Sandy Bridge (with conventional cooling)
the 95W says it all.. where is your promise of efficiency@77W Intel??!!!



"It seems the blame for these shortcomings is being placed on the 22nm Tri-gate transistors which have further increased transistor density in an already small die size, so much so in fact that heat can't be removed quick enough with air or water for high clock speeds."

Someone invented a cure for that: it's called "Run it @ lower clock speed". I'm told it works great.

I hope u r being sarcastic :rolleyes:

Volts are wrong, CPU-z is pulling the wrong voltage like it did with the Z68 and P67.. Volts on that will be over 1.6
Very true, CPU-Z is reading the VTT instead of the Vcore. ;)

You noticed? That's great, dude: bravo :rolleyes:

I was, ofc, referring to them stock clocks. Doesn't Intel already have a huge lead in IPC? Why is there a need for the huge clocks as well?

If @ 3.5 GHz the heat is very high, then clock it @ ... say ... 3 GHz: it will still be faster then AMD's offerings (i'm assuming) and the heat will be much more tolerable, no?

they cant but stock stocks slower than SB... duh

ES vs. retail. Some of the rumors/previews going around with retail chips aren't doing very well.
this is a retail CPU, :) E0 was the stepping that did 7ghz, this however is E1 as the stepping isn't shown. If it was E0 the stepping would show. E1 is retail stepping.

8.4GHz > 6.6GHz suck that Intel!!!

Herp derp still not even approaching the world record!!! AMD FTW!!! Intel sUx0rs!!!

already said on the first page, he's a 0/10 troll :D no way he believes in what he said.

trolling is a art

As Hayder_Master said, 6.6ghz at 1.056v is a complete fake. Perhaps CPUz is not reading the VCore properly? Or there is some photoshop happening :)

Not bad, a good sign of thing's to come i would imagine :)

Like everyone else i too am more interested in "standard" type (Air/Water cooled OC) as that is more relevant to the masse's but we need people pushing the tech to it's limit's to show what it's truly capable of :rockout:
