Intel’s Raptor Lake cpus have actually been let loose as well as have actually thrilled overall, with the front runner obtaining a beautiful evaluation from us– as well as since Core i9-13900K has actually ordered the globe document for the fastest ever before desktop computer CPU overclock.
Yes, the long-held title which AMD happily secured down some 8 years back– with its FX 8370 cpu– has actually dropped, with specialist overclocker Elmor handling to press the 13900K to get to a shocking 8812.85 MHz.
The globe document established by the AMD FX 8370 (thanks to The Stilt) was 8722.78 MHz, suggesting the 13900K was 1% faster (this is passing the HWBOT positions (opens up in brand-new tab), as flagged up by VideoCardz (opens up in brand-new tab)).
Naturally, this overclock made use of fluid nitrogen air conditioning, as all record-breaking undertakings do (or an equal unique technique of taking the CPU right down in temperature level briefly, to enable it to be pressed extremely difficult). The 13900K was beinged in an Asus ROG Z790 Apex motherboard (Shamino from Asus ROG was associated with the record-setting overclock which you can see right here (opens up in brand-new tab)).
Analysis: The ideal is yet ahead?
Well, we type of thought this was coming, after the Core i9-13900K was doing so well in dripped beta overclocks (which crested the 8GHz mark, and afterwards 8.2 GHz much more lately). What we really did not anticipate, to be reasonable, is for the Raptor Lake front runner to quickly depose the AMD FX 8370 on top of the fastest-ever positions on HWBOT.
Usually, it takes even more time to recognize such excellent overclocking gains, so this is a seriously mind-blowing revealing from the 13900K. More to the factor, undoubtedly as time advances, overclockers will certainly obtain even more out of any type of offered cpu, so we can prepare for the 13900K pressing closer to the magic 9GHz mark, also.
What does this mean for the typical computer customer? Or at the very least, the typical computer customer checking out the premium of the cpu market that can manage to spray out on front runner silicon?
Well, certainly these people will not see anything like shutting on 9GHz rates which can just be accomplished by unique air conditioning. But what this stands for is an indicator that the 13900K is mosting likely to provide great overclocking possibility in any way degrees, as well as certainly the entire Raptor Lake array relatively will.
We’re currently listening to in other places that there abounds clearance for overclocking (for the typical customer) with the 13700K– the much more economical Raptor Lake higher-end (Core i7) alternative– so all this bodes actually well for players or lovers that intend to obtain one of the most out of their 13th-gen chip despite air cooling (as well as absolutely a great fluid colder).
In short, fluid nitrogen isn’t required to actually feel the advantage of Raptor Lake’s overclocking chops, not by any type of ways– as well as these are amazing times for those that such as to play with their CPU as well as fine-tune it to obtain the most effective efficiency.
