Intel Core i9-11900K reaches 7.31 GHz thanks to the AORUS TACHYON

World clock speed records and performance records have been broken on the Super Pi 1M and Super Pi 32M using Intel's new flagship i9-11900K processors, along with the GIGABYTE Z590 AORUS TACHYON motherboard.

Thanks to the AORUS TACHYON motherboard, the Intel Core i9-11900K processor was able to achieve a clock speed of 7.31GHz, using LN2 liquid nitrogen as cooling.

This has enabled GIGABYTE AORUS to set some world overclocking records and results in the Super Pi 1M and Super Pi 32M benchmark tests.

GIGABYTE is taking the opportunity to promote its brand new AORUS TACHYON motherboard, with which such feats would not have been possible. The brand comments that its motherboard is designed to support extreme overclocking of all those processors of the Intel Comet Lake-S and Rocket Lake-S series, using a power phase of 12 + 1 phases, which each support about 100 amps. . Without these VRM phases, it would not have been possible to support clock speeds above 7 GHz.

The VRM segment of the AORUS TACHYON motherboard uses tantalum capacitors, which allow for a lower temperature and more stable overclocking at high frequencies. In addition, a solution called Reactive Armor is incorporated that uses a one-piece metal heat sink that helps dissipate heat more efficiently in the MOSFET. This provides a greater overclocking range when operating at lower temperatures.

The PCB design called 2Oz of the CPU area and the exclusive 2DIMM memory routing called 'Daisy Chain' with an anti-interference design allows greater stability in the communication between the CPU and the memory than in other unprepared motherboards. for the OC.

Among other features, the AROUS TACHYON has a 2.5Gb Ethernet port, WIFI 6E 802.11ax, USB 3.2 Gen2x2 TYPE-C® interface, and PCIe 4.0 expansion slots. The motherboard supports QFLASH, which makes it easy to update the BIOS via USB without installing a CPU, memory, or graphics card.

You can see more information on the official product page, where they also comment that DDR4 memory can reach up to 6870 MHz.
