World Record for Core i7 CPU Frequency Broken at 5510.09MHz!-- ASUS ROG Rampage II Extreme Smashes World Record in CPU Frequency on Latest Intel Platform --
Fremont, California (December 2nd, 2008) - The release of the Intel Core i7 has set the overclocking arena abuzz with excitement in anticipation of new world records. Armed with the ASUS ROG Rampage II Extreme motherboard that supports the newest Intel platform, the Japanese overclocking enthusiast duck smashed to the top of the overclocking charts and notched in a world record for Core i7 CPU frequencies. Recording an exceptional score of 5510.09 MHz, duck clearly laid down the gauntlet for future challengers to the throne. A CPU overclocking veteran, duck still holds the world’s highest frequency for overclocking a Pentium 4 631 CPU to a staggering 8180.4MHz last year.
The new world record was in no small part thanks to the overclocking-oriented features found on the new Rampage II Extreme motherboard. TweakIt, an easy-to-use joystick-like control on the motherboard, enables overclockers to make real-time changes to their systems’ core frequency, voltage and other parameters—even while the benchmark utility is running. At no point does software come into play, as the tweaking is completely hardware-based. With hassle-free tweaking, coupled with real-time LCD poster information such as system frequency, users can implement on-the-fly modifications during CPU tests for extraordinary benchmark scores.
Watercooled Core 2 Quad Q6600 3.70GHz G0 Stepping 411MHz FSB 1.535v / Asus P5Q3 Deluxe P45 / 4GB Corsair XMS3 @ 1600MHz / nVidia GeForce 9800GTX+ 1GB 775/2200/1950 / Corsair HX520w Modular PSU / X-Fi Extreme Gamer / 2x 640GB WD Cavier Blue Sata 2 Raid 0 / Samsung spinpoint F1 1TB Backup Drive / Thermaltake Armor VA8003BWS / Swiftech apogee GTZ / Altec Lansing 5.1 Surround System / Samsung SyncMaster T260 26" / Asus MW221u 22inch Secondary LCD / Windows Vista Home Premium.
That TweakIt thing sounds pretty cool.
