The 13th Gen Intel Core desktop processor family recently broke the longstanding processor overclocking frequency world record. Assisted by ASUS, the Intel Core i9-13900K was ramped to 9.008 GHz, breaking the previous world record at launch.
The achievement provides desktop enthusiasts and gamers with the best processors and features for PC industry:
"The ASUS overclocking team officially set a new world record for overclocking, pushing the 13th Gen Intel Core i9-13900K past the 9 gigahertz barrier to 9.008 GHz. Additionally, the team set new records in PIFAST (6.85 seconds) and SUPERPI 1M (3.822 seconds).
Combining the Core i9-13900K with the ROG MAXIMUS Z790 APEX – and a healthy dose of liquid helium – the ASUS overclocking team became the latest to showcase the unprecedented overclocking performance in Intel’s unlocked processors."
The new world record was accomplished using liquid helium cooling instead of the traditional liquid nitrogen cooling technique. Overclocking involves running a computer faster than normally possible to reach higher performance processor goals. A few months Asus recently achieved World-Leading AI Performance Results.
