7 GHz Ivy Bridge Intel Chip Tears Through Super Pi

Intel's Ivy Bridge CPUs are really painting themselves as hardcore chips, even now. 

Of course, it might be more accurate to say that the people who got their hands on them early on are to blame for the hype. 

Then again, when a chip turns out to be an overclocking beast like Core i7-3770K, you really don't need to put too much effort into marketing anymore. 

Sure, only a handful of enthusiasts will buy the thing, but everyone else also has a cause to gawk. 

After all, it isn't every day that a CPU reaches 7 GHz and smashes through one of the most challenging benchmarks ever. 

Long story short, the Core i7-3770K was pushed to 6961.6 MHz and finished the Super Pi 1M test in 5.187 seconds. 

Likewise, the same chip, working at 6650.1 MHz, did the Super Pi 1 32M in 5 minutes, 2.843 seconds.
