GIGABYTE Motherboard becomes the first with validated 7.032 GHz CPU Clock World Record on Ivy Bridge

GIGABYTE has announced the record highest validated CPU clock speed on the Intel Core i7 3770K processor using a GIGABYTE Z77X-UD3H motherboard, as well as the new world record highest DDR3 memory speed using the GIGABYTE Z77X-U5H motherboard.

Renowned CPU overclocker HiCookie claimed to have pushed the GIGABYTE Z77X-UD3H motherboard to a fully validated 7.03 GHz using liquid nitrogen cooling, surpassing the 7.0 GHz milestone using an Intel 3rd generation Core i7 3770K processor that is also known as Intel Ivy Bridge platform.

The 7.03 GHz is regarded as the current #1 highest Ivy Bridge CPU frequency and a world record according to respected global overclocking website HWBot.org.

In addition to establishing world record of processor overclocking, the HiCookie also claims to have broken the current highest memory speed for the Intel Ivy Bridge platform, reaching an unprecedented 3280MHz with all 4 memory slots populated using the GA-Z77X-UD5H motherboards and G.Skill Trident X DDR3-2800 memory – also a new world record.

“These new world records highlight our belief that top notch quality and design deliver truly world-class, record breaking performance,” commented Tim Handley, Deputy Director of Motherboard Marketing at GIGABYTE. “These new performance achievements come at a very opportune time as we prepare to introduce our next generation high-performance CPU power zone at Computex 2012, and we’re expecting even better results from motherboard models with this new feature!”

These new world records announced today have been fully validated by CPUz and Canard PC, considered the standard validation mechanism for overclockers worldwide and can be check out on HWBot.org website.
