KOMPAS.com – Although already 14 years old, a processor Intel Celeron The D 347 turned out to be still strong and forced to run far above its normal speed through techniques overclocking. The processor’s working frequency can even reach the 8.36 GHz range.
This figure is higher than the latest Intel processors, such as the highest Core i9-10900K that can run at a speed of 7.71 GHz.
The owner who uses the username ivanqu0208 also registers it on the site HW Bot and CPU-Z OC World Records which is a ranking reference overclocking world, where the processor perches as one of the highest frequency numbers.
Celeron D 347 itself is a processor single-core with base clock 3.06 GHz. When first released, this processor was popular among people overclocker because it is relatively easy to be encouraged to run above normal.
However, each processor unit has potential overclock which varies due to manufacturing variations. Celeron D 347 in the hands of Ivanqu0208 managed to be forced to run almost three times higher than standard speed with liquid nitrogen coolant capital.
Such extreme cooling is necessary so that the processor can run at very high speeds without experiencing overheat. Other supporting components used are an Asus P5E64 WS Professional motherboard, and 2GB of DDR3 RAM.
As assembled KompasTekno from Gizmodo, Monday (14/12/2020), although it goes with clockspeed very high, this processor is not a world record holder.
According to the Guinness World Record, the predicate belongs to an AMD employee from Texas, United States, who in 2014 succeeded in doing so overclocking FX-8370 processor up to a frequency of 8.72 GHz.
