recent world records Achieved by professional overclockers Elmor using Intel’s fastest single socket. processor, Zeon The W9-3495X works with Maxon’s popular 3D renderer, Cinebench R23. Workstation PC.
It was cooled to -92.8 degrees Celsius (-135 degrees Fahrenheit) and boosted to 5.5 GHz on all 56 cores using liquid nitrogen. With a base frequency of 1.7 GHz (CPU consumes 350 W) and max turbo frequency of 4.8 GHz (420 W consumed), it’s a significant increase.
At its peak, the entire workstation drew almost 1.9kW (what a tumble dryer or hair dryer draws) and required a pair of 1.6kW PSUs to power it. I don’t know how much power the CPU consumes by itself, nor what the components are (which would have allowed me to do reasonable math).
Exceeded the world record of 132,000 points. However, as an exercise
Summarized in another articleis great for headlines, but it doesn’t say much about actual performance, especially since it doesn’t give a clear indication of what future CPU families will do.
Raw clock speeds tend to be an expensive way to reach a certain performance level from a resource standpoint. This explains why even Intel now relies on so-called performance and efficient cores in their mainstream processors.
arm Introduced 12 years ago in the big.LITTLE paradigm. extreme cooling is here
As for cooling with liquid nitrogen, it will never become mainstream among consumers, but the market for cooling systems and coolants is huge.

water cooling solution Popular with gamers and traditional overclockers, microsoft, intel and Google Immersion cooling Server hardware is literally submerged in a tank of non-conductive liquid, much like an oil heater works.
Smartphone vendors have also found innovative ways to dissipate heat in an economical and efficient way (remember we can’t afford fans).Solution like
