Bright Side of News reports overclockers are achieving pretty good results with samples of Intel's upcoming Core i7-3770K:
The flagship product, Intel Core i7-3770K is a quad-core processor with 128 KB of L1 cache (4x32 KB), 1 MB of L2 cache (4x256 KB) and 8 MB of L3 cache. The processor operates at 3.5 GHz, which is the identical clock to the succeeding product, Core i7-2700K. When you take a look at differences between Sandy and Ivy Bridge, there wasn't a lot of changes on the x86 processing side, but that wasn't the focus of Intel engineers. As leaked results show, the processor is significantly better in graphics performance than Sandy Bridge. However, as key game developers say to us - the question isn't the hardware, it's the software.
When it comes to the hardware side, we were shown that the processor excels in performance. We saw the samples of Core i7-3770K going from 3.5 GHz to a massive 7.06 GHz clock. By raising voltage to 1.889 Volts, using 63x multiplier and 112.11 MHz and using dry ice - the 22nm beast passed 7000 MHz.
