intel_4770K_7ghz

Intel’s Haswell processors are just around the corner, expected to be here within the next month, and as a result the professional overclockers are ramping up efforts to break those world records before the Core i7 4770K is even released. Samples of the Core i7 4770K have been in circulation for quite some time now and overclocker “rtiueuiurei” has managed to take an Engineering Sample (ES) version of the Intel Core i7 4770K to 7GHz – an impressive feat as we didn’t really see Ivy Bridge go much higher than that after overclockers had been playing with it for over a year.

According to the CPU-Z validation this 7012.65 MHz was achieved with a base clock of 91.07MHz, multiplier of 77 and a huge 2.56v core voltage. It is quite possible that 2.56 volts is a misread by CPU-Z as overclockers have already pushed Haswell to 6.2GHz with 1.216v. Either way with such a high clock speed and voltage it is no doubt that liquid nitrogen cooling was used to achieved this. Windows XP, an Nvidia 8400 GS and 2GB of G Skill DDR3 RAM finish off the rest of the test system.

An impressive achievement indeed, expect results to emerge on HWBot when the NDA for Haswell lifts in the first week of June. What are your thoughts on the Core i7 4770K reaching 7GHz?

  1. I suppose it’s good if high overclocking numbers impress you…

    Daaaaamn

    Uhh, why is it saying that Windows XP was used when the theme on CPU-Z is the windows 7 basic theme?

  4. Vistex says:

    TOTALLY POINTLESS. Haswell is an embedded ONLY CPU. We can’t touch it in the real world!!!

  5. How you can imagine 2.56 volts is a misread by CPU-Z as overclockers have already pushed
    Haswell to 6.2GHz with 1.216v. Either way with such a high clock speed
    and voltage it is no doubt that liquid nitrogen cooling was used to
    achieved this. Windows XP, an Nvidia 8400 GS and 2GB of G Skill DDR3 RAM
    finish off the rest of the test system. ping back deleted at

    Why write your own article based on your fictional facts, when the source article is significantly better written and more accurate.
    Vistex is wrong. You are too, only not AS wrong.
    Haswell is expected to launch in three major forms:[7]
    (1) Desktop version (LGA1150 socket): Haswell-DT
    (2) Mobile/Laptop version (PGA socket): Haswell-MB
    (3) BGA version:

    (a) 47W and 57W TDP classes: Haswell-H (For “All-in-one” systems, Mini-ITX form factor motherboards, and other small footprint formats.)

    (b) 13.5W and 15W TDP classes (SoC): Haswell-ULT (For Intel’s UltraBook platform.)

    (c) 10W TDP class (SoC): Haswell-ULX (For tablets and certain UltraBook-class implementations.)

    Compares the 7GHz intel with 4GHz AMD processor, FUUUUU!!!!

    • oklah23 says:

      Well, the AMD record is 8ghz, not that im AMD fanboy. However, this super high overclock is only for showoff no matter intel or amd.

  8. NAME says:

    XP? that looks like windows 7 to me.

    • Ryan Martin says:

      It CLEARLY states “Windows XP Professional SP3 (Build 2600)” underneath the processor title “Intel Core i7 4770K”

      • Nikb says:

        Why does the window have a Win7 Theme then? Wouldn’t it be a bit pointless to make XP look like 7 just to overclock?

        • Ryan Martin says:

          The image is not taken from within Windows, the image is taken from the CanardPC CPU-Z database. That “theme” is the default layout applied to all CPU-Z validations on CanardPC.
