So far, we've seen the i7-4770K overclocked to both 7.0 GHz and 8.0 GHz, and now we see another overclocking something that's possibly even more impressive. While the overclock shown here might just be one that goes up to 5.0 GHz, it appears that the overclocker has managed to pull this off at just 0.904 V.
Now, what is clear from the CPU-Z screenshot is that the overclock has been pulled off with HyperThreading disabled.
In the meantime, another overclock was shown as well; one where the chip ran at 3.8 GHz at a mere 0.719 V.
Of course, while these overclocks are impressive, it remains to be seen whether they are actually stable. It is very possible that once a load is applied, the CPU destabilizes and the system crashes.
the computer would have to go under load when loading up windows, even if it is for a short while... i wonder HOW stable it is... if this is true, and the person got it to 5.0ghz, an upgrade from ivy bridge may actually seem worth it!
Haswell should scale down nicely!
1 netbook with a 2Ghz 1 core while hyperthreaded please, @ 0.5 V please
I really want to see the temperatures of these things.
They mentioned a limit of or around 8Ghz because of the multiplier limitations.
Interesting, well I just hope this is true, this chip can have a lot of overclocking potential.
1.maximum recommended volt/this one 1.5/0.9 = 1.66666666
2.1.666666 * 5=8
it looks like 8Ghz is really the max clock for this epic CPU
