Intel Core i9-7900X Breaks 5.7Ghz – Sets Cinebench Record
The CPU battle between AMD and Intel over the past couple of weeks has been intense, to say the least. However, Intel looks to settle the score with one of the new Kaby Lake-X processors – the Core i9-7900X.
This $999, 10 core monster has broken 5.7Ghz by known overclocker Elmor. Using liquid nitrogen, Elmor pushed the processor to 5,785Mhz and ran tests in Cinebench. Here’s the scores.
- Core i9-7900X @ 5,755MHz: 3,181 points in Cinebench R15
- Core i9-7900X @ 5,785MHz: 34.79 points in Cinebench R11.5
This a record for 10 core processors and was achieved with an Asus Rampage VI Apex X299 Gaming motherboard and 12GB of G.Skill TridentZ memory. Oh, and there was a 1080 Ti too, but that seemed less impressive in context.
It should be noted that this isn’t even the flapship CPU from Intel’s new line, so we’re excited to see what kind of score their $1999 Core i9-1960XE.
