An overclocker dreams of soaring into first place ranking for CInebench with a 3D-printed dragon head and AMD CPU.
This specially-binned chip got as quick as 6.95 GHz on all of its cores or over 7-GHz on a single core.
We overclocked a Core i9-9900K with Intel's one-click Performance Maximizer tool and reached 5.0 GHz.
