ROG reaches highest Intel Core speed, and overclockers break six world records

ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) announced that overclockers have used the latest ROG Maximus XII Apex powerhouse motherboard to break a slew of world records and secure a raft of global first place scores.
Marking a new performance milestone, overclockers took the Intel® Core™ i9-10900K all the way up to 7.7 GHz frequencies on all 10 of its cores. Because of the ongoing global situation, ASUS was unable to host its traditional overclocking gathering this year, so instead a smaller session took place at the ASUS headquarters in Taiwan — with local overclockers Jon ‘Elmore’ Sandström and Pieter ‘Massman’ Plaisier working alongside internal ASUS experts. Using a liquid-helium setup, the group managed to shatter the Intel Core architecture frequency record, the single-core Geekbench 4 record, and took global first-place positions in 10-core categories for Geekbench 3, Cinebench R15, and wPrime 32M.
