Intel is on the verge of releasing its new X299 platform, with its new Core i7-7740K processor that seems to be hitting 5GHz pretty easily, and at low voltages - so low temps, too.




VideoCardz has got the reviewers' guide on its hands, and based across 100 samples of the Core i7-7740K, it should hit 5GHz with just 1.205V of power. At its worst, the 7740K needs 1.341V to hit 5GHz. The guide says that the Core i7-7740K has a higher overclocking ceiling than the 7700K, with 5.1GHz achievable with 1.255-1.411V.
