Ever imagined Liquid Nitrogen used to cool any piece of hardware? Well, the future is here and it seems like Intel was involved.
Liquid nitrogen unofficially used as a cooling agent in order to bring Intel’s processor to the next level. When first looking at it, there is a lot of admiration surrounding the Rocket Lake processor. However, this still requires a certain level of cooling as it is capable of sending its own clocks skywards reaching a stratospheric whopping 6.9 GHz and more! This could be a whole new thing for gaming hardware in the future.

There were two different short clips that had been posted to Twitter showing how overclockers were able to push a certain octa-core Rocket Lake processor to reach a whopping 6923.56 MHz with the use of liquid nitrogen! They reportedly used a 113.50 MHz bus speed that was paired with a massive 61x multiplier. The known 8GB of the processor’s system memory is also similarly overclocked to an unbelievable 6666.66MHz.
These clips are also rather devoid of its novel information, but as far as the development is concerned, the official use of exotic cooling on the given Rocket Lake processors is actually pretty intriguing. This may indicate that the official release is quite imminent. If this would be the case, then the official Intel keynote expected on Monday that is helmed by their very own executive VP known as Gregory Bryant could be the defining moment.

According to the story reported by TechSpot, it looks like Intel is most likely going to use liquid nitrogen as a certain marketing ploy for its powerful Rocket Lake. This is a reminder to all gamers to treat the bold performance claims however with suspicion.
The very last time that Intel reportedly used exotic cooling for its own marketing was back at the Computex 2018. Bryant had proudly displayed a certain 28-core processor that was able to overclock up to 5GHz. It seems like this record was beaten with the recent 6.9 GHz shown in the video. The shown industrial cooler that the hardware required was literally hidden right under the table. Intel then claimed that everything was actually a misunderstanding.

With the help of a little luck, Intel won’t really need these marketing tactics in order to sell their own Rocket Lake. It will also be the very first generation of Intel desktop processors that will be introducing this particular type of architecture. This could possibly boost the hardware’s performance by a whopping ~20%. This will also be introducing the PCIe 4.0 as well as the AVX-512 to the given Intel platform.
With the use of liquid nitrogen, Intel might even be able to elevate the playing field allowing overclocking to take place on a whole new level. While overclocking to 5 GHz is already massive, it might be seen that in the future, gamers could possibly overclock up to a massive 6.9 GHz or more!
