New Processors are much efficient than before, with 7nm to 14nm design, and holds most of the world records of Overclocking. Both companies are dominating in this huge battle of Processor market, and giving PC enthusiasts & Advanced users a choice of boosting performance to another level by increasing clock speeds & providing factory unlocked CPUs.
Even though they have significantly better performance, they may be the best gaming CPUs available today, but they’re not much of an extreme overclocker, just enough to give you those much ten to twenty fps. However, benchmarking with Liquid Nitrogen and Liquid Helium, the criteria does change for PC enthusiasts. Because we’re talking about Guinness World Record, aren’t we?
Can you guess which CPU holds the MAX clock rate record?
Well, without further talking, let us reveal the name. Yeah it’s none other than the 6 or more years old CPU from AMD, Piledriver architecture based processor named FX-8370. It holds the highest clock rate from year 2014, 8.723 GHz, holds the Guinness World Record of max clock rate record, and still unbeaten. It surpassed the previous record, clocked at 8.429 GHz, which was also an AMD chip called FX-8150 (Bulldozer architecture based).
The list of clock rate world record can be found here.
So, what do you think? Can any modern CPU can break this record? Tell us!
