It’s hard for ordinary people to understand what it means to overclock and toss overclocking. Is it useful to run all day? It doesn’t work, but it makes sense. The overclocking player GRIFF has done a miracle today by overclocking the Intel Classic Pentium MMX processor to 372MHz, an increase of more than 124%, the latter with a default frequency of only 166MHz.
GRIFF is now the new champion of Pentium MMX processor overclocking, 22MHz higher than the second-place 350MHz, i don’t know if anyone else can challenge the new record again, 400MHz?
The Pentium MMX series processor was released in 1996, socket 7 slot, 350nm process, FSB frequency 66MHz, initially 166, 200MHz two, and later added 233MHz high-frequency version, but pentium MMX 166 because of the low frequency, more popular with overclocking players.
This overclocking record is now running points is not interesting, but its emergence and evoked many years ago DIY players yearning for overclocking fun, before the limit is not so much, ordinary people buy a low-end CPU, it is possible to get 50% or even 100% performance growth from overclocking, far less than today’s limited death.
