Ivy Bridge overclocked to 7.063GHz

Written by Nick Farrell



And it is not even out yet


Intels next-generation code-named “Ivy Bridge” microprocessor  has been overclocked by two times higher than the default frequency.

According to Bright Side of News web-site, enthusiasts have managed to overclock quad-core Intel Core i7-3770K microprocessor from default 3.50GHz to whopping 7.063GHz.  It is not clear how the enthusiasts got their paws on the chip which is not out yet and is going to be delayed until June. It is not certain what cooling system was used during the overclocking procedure. Our guess is that it was probably temperature found on the surface of Pluto, or the Peljesac Pensinsula when you get the only summer's holiday Fudo ever gives you. [Respublica Ragusina FTW. Ed]

The highest clock-speed ever achieved by a PC microprocessor is 8585MHz. Andre Yang has managed to ovcerclock an AMD FX microprocessor using Asus Crosshair V Formula mainboard and liquid nitrogen cooling system. Ivy Bridge will have improvements that will boost its performance in general applications by around 20 per cent compared to Core i "Sandy Bridge" chips and new graphics core with DirectX 11 and OpenCL 1.1 support.  This will provide 30 per cent higher performance compared to the predecessor as well as new video processor and display controllers.

Ivy Bridge will feature PCI Express 3.0 x16 interconnection as well as PCIe 2.0 x4 controller.
