If AMD can be making overclocking records, so can Intel. Apparently a renowned overclocker better known as HiCookie, took his Intel Core i7 3770K processor to a mammoth 7.03 GHz on liquid nitrogen on a GIGABYTE Z77X-UD3H motherboard to claim the world’s highest Ivy Bridge CPU frequency validation.
Populating all 4 memory slots with the G.Skill Trident X DDR3-2800 memory, he took the memory speeds up to 3280 MHz which is also a new record that too thanks to GIGABYTE’s on board fine memory tuning capabilities.
Check out the press release after the break.
GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co. Ltd., a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards, today announced the record highest validated CPU clock speed on the Intel Core i7 3770K processor using a GIGABYTE Z77X-UD3H motherboard, as well as the new world record highest DDR3 memory speed using the GIGABYTE Z77X-U5H motherboard.
The 7.0 GHz milestone was surpassed using an Intel 3rd generation Core i7 3770k processor (aka Ivy Bridge) by renowned overclocker HiCookie, pushing the GIGABYTE Z77X-UD3H motherboard to a fully validated 7.03 GHz using liquid nitrogen cooling. This is regarded as the current #1 highest Ivy Bridge CPU frequency and a world record according to respected global overclocking website HWBot.org.
Additionally, HiCookie has broken the current highest memory speed for the Intel Ivy Bridge platform, reaching an unprecedented 3280MHz with all 4 memory slots populated using the GA-Z77X-UD5H motherboards and G.Skill Trident X DDR3-2800 memory - also a new world record. This new record was achieved thanks in part to GIGABYTE’s engineering prowess and tried-and-true memory tuning capabilities.
"These new world records highlight our belief that top notch quality and design deliver truly world-class, record breaking performance," commented Tim Handley, Deputy Director of Motherboard Marketing at GIGABYTE. "These new performance achievements come at a very opportune time as we prepare to introduce our next generation high-performance CPU power zone at Computex 2012, and we're expecting even better results from motherboard models with this new feature!"
