Gulftown: Intel's 6-core CPU overclocked to 6.4 GHz
Six cores running at about 6.4 GHz? Overclocker Shamino used liquid nitrogen to get Intel's Gulftown to 6,386 MHz.
It is generally known that Intel's 6-core Gulftown processors won't hit the markets until next year. But some engineering samples have already been given to some people. Extreme overclocker Shamino now got his hands on one of the CPUs and used liquid nitrogen (LN2) to overclock it.
The frequencies he reached are quite impressive. With a rather high voltage of 2.02 volt the six cores were running at 6,386 MHz. For stable benchmarks 5.9 GHz were possible. In a Performance run Futuremark's 3DMark Vantage the Gulftown setup reached 51,177 processor points. The current world record is 32.328 points (four cores) in this discipline. So the chip apparently has a lot of capabilities. In our gallery you can find pictures of the benchmarks results and CPU-Z shots.
