Performance in Overclocked Mode
Keeping in mind that Core i7-2600K and Core i7-990X Extreme Edition allow increasing their clock frequency by 20-40%, we decided to also check out their performance and performance scalability during overclocking. In the second part of our today’s test session we will compare the performance of Core i7-2600K and Core i7-990X Extreme Edition processors overclocked with and without Vcore increase against the performance of other overclocker processors working in similar conditions.
So, we ended up testing Intel Core i5-2500K, Intel Core i7-2600K, Intel Core i7-875K, Intel Core i7-990X Extreme Edition and AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Black Edition processors in the following modes:
In all cases we overclocked our processors by raising their clock frequency multiplier. The memory frequency in these testbeds didn’t change and remained at 1600 MHz. The testbeds configuration also remained the same as in the first part of our today’s tests.
