Intel Core i9-14900KF Shatters World Records with a 9 GHz Clock Speed

The recently launched Intel Raptor Lake central processing unit (CPU) series wasted no time in astounding the overclocking community with its unprecedented performance.

Overclockers opted for the Core i9-14900KF over the i9-14900K, seeking to maximize their overclocking potential. The Core i9-14900KF boasts an impressive 24 cores and 32 threads, with a base clock speed of 3.2 GHz and the capability to reach up to 6 GHz thanks to Thermal Velocity Boost technology. It also features a 36 MB Level 3 cache and a 32 MB Level 2 cache.

This version lacks an integrated graphics processor but supports both DDR5 and DDR4 memory. The CPU demands 125 watts of power, with a peak power consumption of 253 watts. It is priced at $589.

The professional overclocking team composed of SkatterBencher, Elmor, Shamino, and Bing collaborated to break world records using an ROG Maximus Z790 Apex Encore motherboard and a liquid helium cooling system. They achieved a staggering clock speed of 9043.92 MHz.

These results were recorded on the CPU-Z benchmarking program and await official validation for formal recognition.

Furthermore, another overclocking feat was accomplished with the Core i9-14900KF, reaching an astounding 9.1 GHz clock speed. However, official confirmation is still pending for this achievement to be officially recognized.
