Overclocked by AU team, cooled by Intel VP himself
The 8GHz Intel Core i9-14900KF pushes the gaming rig to 1,300 fps in CS2.
One of Intel’s main marketing claims for its 14th Gen Core series revolves around overclocking capability. The announcement was immediately tested by the overclocking community, which wasted no time in setting a new world record of 9.04 GHz for the highest frequency ever achieved on a consumer processor. However, it is important to note that such world records are a far cry from real-world usage scenarios and primarily involve capturing and confirming peak frequencies through the use of lightweight software that boosts the processor cores.
Another noteworthy overclocking endeavor was made during IEM Sydney. The Australian OC team has outfitted its system with a discrete GPU, likely an RTX 4090, and paired it with the latest Core i9-14900KF CPU, which already boasts a maximum boost clock of 6.0GHz. AU’s overclocking team was able to push the CPU clock speed to 8GHz across all P cores, while the E cores were disabled, achieving an impressive average frame rate of 900 to 1,300 fps, as evidenced by Their videos.
To make things even more interesting, Roger Chandler was given the task of filling the vessel with liquid nitrogen. He is responsible for the enthusiast PC and workstation segment of Intel’s Client Computing Group. It should be noted that Roger is the one who initially unveiled the new Intel 14th Gen Core series.
This was not just a fixed proposition or a standardized test; It was a live, real-time gaming session. In fact, during the demo, one attendee actively participated in the game, scoring a few kills in the process.
