Oh WTF, Dudes at 5220MHZ on this processor - on water.
I may spring on the EE version of this processor if 4.5-5ghz is a reliable OC estimate.
I might come up with something more witty when my jaw gets reattached.
Just 2 questions though? How does one get their hands on these ES chips? And why arn't the Intel police busting doors down for released pics/info/benchmarks?
Do you know if the R3E will come in a non-NF200 model?
What's your room temp managerman? I'm thinking that these new chips don't have the right TJmax numbers in Real Temp... I mean... 22c idle on a core @ 4.4ghz is pretty much impossible if your room is ~20c.
The new 32nm temperature sensors that Intel are using are not very accurate at idle.
The i7-920 temperature sensors were excellent but Intel has taken a step back to the good old days where the sensors they use can have a lot of slope error. This means that at temperatures a long ways away from the calibration point, these sensors will start to read either too high or too low. The amount they are off is random and varies from one core to the next.
Your load temperatures will be somewhat accurate if you get these sensors up to about 70C where the amount of slope error tends to be minimal. Below 70C it's pointless trying to compare reported temperatures from these CPUs with the original 45nm Core i7-9xx series CPUs because the sensors are not good enough for that.
Intel only designs these sensors to trigger thermal throttling at about 100C and thermal shutdown at about 125C. I find the sensors, even though they are not accurate, tend to be consistent so if a core reads a few degrees low at idle one day it will read the same amount too low 6 months from now.
Dude... poor AMD. lol
Wow...that seems like a lot of voltage in a 32nm chip. But 4.6Ghz looks really nice in the benchies.
I think it is too...I am currently running at 4.5Ghz....at 1.42v...Still high but better...and stable! Going to do a few Vantage runs..that should be interesting..
