It would seem that the experiments in extreme overclocking of Core 12-generation chips should have already exhausted themselves, because many famous overclockers have already demonstrated the highest results and took 90% of the first places in the overwhelming number of disciplines. However, as we have always said: this is far from the case. In CPU overclocking, a lot depends on whether you got your hands on a perfect sample of a particular CPU.
Apparently, TanteKaethe has found that very, rare sample of Intel Core i9-12900K. The enthusiast managed to overclock the processor to an impressive 6619.34 MHz and completed the y-cruncher Pi-1b benchmark with 13 sec 612 ms, which corresponds to the first place in the model score of the CPU of the same name, as well as gold in the model score of chips with eight cores.
We should note that in order to achieve higher frequency, Overclocker disabled the energy efficient core.
Judging purely by the figures of the achieved frequency, the overclocking is certainly not particularly impressive, but it should be understood that at this frequency CPU turned out to be quite capable of completing relatively complex benchmarks.
The Core i9-12900K is backed by G.SKILL Trident Z5 RGB RAM kit, GIGABYTE Z690 Aorus Tachyon motherboard and NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 graphics card (GF116 version, 128bit GDDR5 video memory).
