Benchmarks: QX9775 Up To 15% Faster At 4.00 GHz

Intel Skulltrail 3: 8 vs 4 Core Performance
By

By overclocking the Skulltrail system to 3.60 GHz and 4.00 GHz, we were able to improve its performance by 8.1% and 14.9%, respectively. Since only five applications are able to take advantage of the Skulltrail's eight cores, the overall performance improvement is relatively small. Nonetheless, overclocking still pays off.
