The German overclocker sergmann managed to get two gold medals at once in the Cinebench – R20 discipline. The enthusiast won first place in the fresh Intel Pentium Gold G7400T processor rank, and also, which is really impressive, first place in the overall dual-core ranks.

To begin with, it should be noted that the Pentium G7500T chip does not support overclocking either by changing the multiplier or by changing the reference frequency (BCLK). But thanks to the engineers of some Intel motherboard partners who used their own clock generator, overclocking of such processors became possible. Just remember – not all boards based on Z690 chipsets are able to perform such tricks (besides, even those that can – must have the appropriate BIOS version).

Just look at these results! 2190 points in Cinebench R20:

The G7400T chip was overclocked to an impressive 5487MHz. The following overclocking parameters were used: BCLK frequency – 177 MHz, multiplier 31, core voltage – 1.430 volts, DDR5 RAM frequency – 6725 MHz with timings 30-39-39-32.

Sergmann was able to beat the nearest competitor by an impressive 100+ points:

It seems that we are in for a new round of overclockers’ struggle in the niche of ultra-cheap processors.

The enthusiast test setup consisted of the following components:

  • Motherboard – GIGABYTE Z690 Aorus Tachyon (version BIOS – x2M от 01.28.2022);
  • RAM – 32GB DDR5 GIGABYTE 7133 C36 1.45;
  • Power supply – Seasonic Platinum 1300W.
