When liquid nitrogen isn't cold enough

https://www.tomshardware....0900k-overclock-record
(quoted below)



Intel only launched its blazing hot Intel Core i9-10900K yesterday, and we already have a world overclocking record: 7.707 GHz, as recorded on HWBot Wednesday. Since it's so early in the chip's release, chances are we'll see the chip hit even higher speeds in the foreseeable future, but 7.7 GHz on all CPU cores is still a seriously impressive figure.



The overclock was accomplished by an overclocker known Elmor and his colleagues Massman and Shamino at an Asus-hosted overclocking event. Setting the record required something colder than liquid nitrogen, so the team used liquid helium (−269 degrees Celsius / –452 degrees Fahrenheit) to turn Intel's space-heating chip into a sub-zero chunk of number-crunching silicon.

The pro overclockers also tapped the Asus ROG Maximus XII Apex motherboard, along with one stick of G.Skill Trident Z RGB RAM.

The voltage during the overclock was 1.194V, but remember that you don't need much when running at extremely low temperatures.

For Intel's previous range-topping chip, the Intel Core i9-9900K, the world record currently sits at 7613.19 MHz, as held by Der8auer. The i9-10900K has more cores than its predecessor. Consequently, the i9-10900K's current world record shows that Intel has managed to optimize the silicon further, despite still being stuck on the same architecture as Skylake from eons ago and the 14nm process.

Of course, you've probably heard of higher overclocks before. It's worth noting that with the core race pushing core counts up rapidly, it's become less feasible to run all cores at the same frequency. With many of today's modern and best CPUs packing so many cores, there is bound to be one among the lot that loses stability first, at which point the whole system crashes.

Therefore, seeing all of the i9-10900K's cores at a staggering 7707.62 MHz is simply jaw-dropping.


Quite spectacular overclock on all cores!

    Really nice overclock but I wish I could get my hands on a i9 10900k. No one has them at all.

    If you call B&H they might let you pre-order one.  $599 though.

    I'm actually also really surprised with their standard thermal performance too. Even with a tired 14nm (how many "pluses" we at now?) process, they were able to control temps and actually make them cooler than the previous 9XXX generation. Not that the 9XXX series was an especially high benchmark but still having 10 cores run cooler and clock better than their previous 8 core mainstream part is very impressive. 
     
    Though Intel is still getting trounced in price/performance in mundane tasks and actual "work" loads, it is still nice to have new toys to play with for gaming. Hopefully if/when they actually get their next node up and running they can actually start competing in the broader CPU space with AMD and we can get us a good old fashioned CPU arms race going again. If AMD can actually close the gap in game performance it's gonna get really interesting. Though I really don't know what else can be done since their "chiplet" design comes with inherent latency penalties in CCX to CCX cross talk.

    That is impressive and I think it goes to show that when you’re looking at full-fat x86 instruction set - as opposed to far more minimalist gpu or asic sets, the value of a smaller node seems to be less relevant.

    The 7nm node seems to have problems with everything on a single dye, as opposed to chiplets, on the highly CISC based chips.

    Perhaps too much complex stuff going on for the smaller nodes to remain stable 🤔

    I used to mine. Now I compute.

    Those who abuse power, are nothing but scumbags!
     The challenge of power is how to use it and not abuse it. When you abuse it, it reverses on you and it hurts you.The abuse of power that seems to create the most unhappiness is when a person uses personal power to get ahead without regards to the welfare of others, people are obsessed with it. You can take a nice person and turn them into a slob, into an insane being, craving power, destroying anything that stands in their way.
