Intel’s flagship Core i9-11900K processor was clocked at clock speeds in excess of 7GHz, using an aftermarket cooling solution powered by liquid nitrogen. Intel’s 11th General Desktop Processor, known as Rocket Lake-S, Was already seen on an Asus ROG Maximus XIII Apex Motherboard The benchmarking site is running at 7,048 MHz with 1.873 volt power on the CPU-Z validation. The benchmark was run by Over-Rocker-Fisher, who now holds the top three speed records for the Core i9-11900K. The normal clock frequency of the chip is expected to be set at 3.5GHz from the box.
The YouTube channel was also able to overclock the processor with a PC. Although the PCs were not able to reach the 7GHz clock speed achieved by Vale Rog-Fisher, it had Intel’s Core i9-11900K running at 6.5GHz. The unrelated CPU was running at slightly less than 1.678 volts of power.
According to Videocardz, the channel overclocker was able to gain speed by running a custom XOC BIOS from SafeDisk – which also works for Asus – on the Asus ROG Maximus XIII Hero motherboard. The custom BIOS unlocks voltages up to 2 volts, which allowed a faster clock frequency.
Although we now know that Intel’s Core i9-11900K Rocket Lake chipset can run at double clock speeds, it is unclear what performance will increase to increase faster frequencies. Results from the top benchmarking utilities have not been posted at this time, so we still do not have a performance comparison between normal frequencies and faster overclock speeds.
Those interested in Intel’s Rocket Lake processors won’t take long to wait. Rocket Lake is expected to be available tomorrow, March 30, and we’ll see more benchmarks posted at that time.
Intel announced at CES that it would also launch its 12th-generation processor later this year. The company is working hard to design its Elder Lake platform, which will introduce a heterogeneous core architecture for desktops for the first time. The 12th General Elder Lake processor is expected to be launched in late 2021 and, if Intel’s previous launch rhythm is followed, we can expect a debut of mobile chips before desktop parts arrive.
