There's a Skylake CPU-Z Validation at 5.2GHz!

The validation screenshot says it's clocked over 5GHz!

Having been active in the overclocking world, I've grown accustomed to leaks leading up to product launches. Sometimes the leaks are very accurate and spot on, sometimes they're as far off as I'm from beating Dancop in the League. In general, it's good to add some salt to the stories you find online.

That being said, it's good to get excited about upcoming hardware releases. In fact, the next generation of Intel CPUs might just be a lot more exciting than Broadwell ("yikes") and Haswell Refresh were. Skylake rumours are leading everyone to believe it might just be the next big thing for water cooling since Sandy Bridge. In a Facebook post on their wall, HKEPC showed a teaser of a Skylake clocked at 5.2GHz. You'll find plenty of media stating this is done on air cooling, but that's to be confirmed. In any way, it makes us wonder, dream, and hope ... and without hope, there's nothing ...

...and then there will be just good ES and all retails are crap.
Didnt we had that already?

K404 says:

In before "OMG look at that vCore!"

websmile says:

5GHz 32m xp 1,31v at awful slow speed, will be around 6m28s^^ :D - anyway we will see how retails will do, promo started :p

Hong Kong Chi-Kui Lam says:

CPUZ read the VID value only.

Bulgaria I.nfraR.ed says:

Wow, the vcore for that frequency is so low! Can it play Crysis?

Hong Kong Chi-Kui Lam says:

United States xxbassplayerxx says:

Did you guys tune NB/Cache/Uncore? Looks like 4100 in 32M shot. Can it go higher on air?

I will try , 4100 is default setting

Wondering if you already tried disabling the cstates?

Dat RAM though....

If early DDR4 prices are any indicator, gotta be ready to sell a Kidney for those.
Also Lam's validation has even faster RAM, slightly looser though.

i know rite o.O

Dam gina!

Don't trust CPU-Z 1.72 on RAM freq readouts, guys - it usually reads double the actual freq. I've no idea if this is just a bug or a deliberate "feature" to stop noobs asking "why is my DDR3-2400 running at 1200MHz".

United States rtsurfer says:

^^^^

Had to ruin it. /JK

Will know in a few weeks if its a bug, or LAM can tell us right now.

Australia zeropluszero says:

HKEPC breaking nda early? no way!

Australia JunkDogg says:

I'll believe that when my shit turns purple and tastes like rainbow sherbert. :P

The DDR4-spec is also adjusted though

United States rtsurfer says:

NVM..

If you want the world to see how fast a new processor can run with validation wouldnt you run it with low mem speed to be sure it wont crash on mem??
I know I would..

Austria _mat_ says:

A high VccIO is critical to avoid the cold bug when performing LN2 OC. With VccIO at 1.5V temperatures colder than -190C are possible.
Skylake shows a lot of love for overclockers. :)

Say hello to the return of the super-secret liquid helium events :)

Oh good lord give it now.

United States Random says:

either that or new pots... holy physics

August 5th just sayin!

"because overclocking = world record" :rolleyes:
