Intel Core i7-6950X Overclocked To A Whopping 5.7GHz – See All The Details Here

Intel has a new 10-core Broadwell-E gaming chip that is usually a few hours old, though overclockers have already nabbed it in sequence to see how distant they can pull a batch frequencies of a processor, that mount during 3.0GHz (Turbo Boost takes that speed adult to 3.50GHz). Turns out that if we take impassioned measures, afterwards 10-core processors can strech a new magnitude utterly easily.

Intel Core-i7 6950X First Overclocked To 5.2GHz And Then taken To 5.7GHz

PCWorld has reported that during an overclocking eventuality during a Computex 2016 trade uncover in Taipei on Tuesday, vast tanks of glass nitrogen stood on a prepared to assistance overclockers keep a processors cold and to grasp their new speeds on a deca-core chip. Among them was Roman Hartung, who is a product operative from Berlin’s CaseKing. After pouring glass nitrogen invariably on tip of a Broadwell-E chip, it was means to run during around -110 degrees Celsius, that is a coldest a chip will run, and if a heat forsaken any further, it would have shutdown to forestall any intensity damage.


According to a source, Intel Core i7-6950X was using during a speed of 5.2GHz, though a overclockers managed to pull harder and strech a speed separator of 5.7GHz. According to Hartung, a absolute chip is miles improved than a Haswell-E Extreme Edition (Core i7-5960X), saying that if 6950X was using during a speed of 5.3GHz, it would have still beaten a Haswell-E Extreme Edition processor using during a speed of 5.8GHz, display that a newly announced processor displays good gaming performance.


Another overclocker who goes by a nickname LeeghoofD hopes a new Broadwell-E chips will assistance them kick all a prior overclocking records, many of that were achieved on 8-core processors. He reports his commentary that given overclockers have not gotten their hands on a code new Extreme Edition chip for a prolonged time, it will apparently take them some removing used to when tweaking a settings to assistance it run stable.

Intel Broadwell-E Family

“Overclockers haven’t had their hands on a new chips for long, and there’s a training bend during a commencement with each new processor.”


The processor will come in an unbarred package to concede overclocking support. The processor rocks 25 MB of L3 cache (2.5 MB per core). Intel will be seeking a cost of $1723 US for this processor that is an 1.72x boost over a prior flagship (Core i7-5960X). The Intel Core i7-6950X will container 40 PCI-E lanes. The sum TDP of a chip is rated during 140W. All Broadwell-E processors are designed to support quad channel memory clocked during 2400 MHz (native speeds). The CPU is Intel’s initial and a world’s initial deca-core processor so it’s over us because a association would cost it ridiculously.
