Overclocked by Team AU, cooled by Intel VP himself
Intel Core i9-14900KF at 8 GHz pushes a gaming rig to 1300 FPS in CS2.
One of the key marketing claims made by Intel for their 14th Gen Core series centered around its overclocking potential. This declaration was promptly put to the test by the overclocking community, which wasted no time in establishing a new 9.04 GHz world record for the highest frequency ever achieved on a consumer processor. It’s important to note, however, that such world records are far removed 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 took place during IEM Sydney. The Australian OC team equipped their 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 6.0 GHz. Team AU’s overclocking team managed to push the CPU’s clock speed to 8 GHz across all P-cores, while E-Cores were disabled, achieving an impressive average frame rate ranging from 900 to 1300 FPS, as evidenced by their videos.
To make things even more interesting, Roger Chandler was given the task of filling up the pot with liquid nitrogen. He is responsible for the Enthusiast PC and Workstation segment of Intel’s Client Computing Group. It’s worth noting that Roger was the individual who initially unveiled the new Intel 14th Gen Core series.
This wasn’t a mere static demonstration or a benchmark run; it was a live, real-time gameplay session. In fact, during the demonstration, one of the attendees actively participated in the game, scoring some kills in the process.
