Intel and AMD are always trying to one up each other in performance of their CPUs. Overclockers are the same way always trying to beat the numbers that their competition is able to lay down. I talked about the AMD Phenom II CPU today that was overclocked to 6.5GHz.

Asus has announced that one of its motherboards, the P6T6 WS Revolution was used to break the overclocking world record for the Intel Core i7 CPU. The record setting score was 5611.22MHz, not quite as high as the AMD Phenom II was able to hit.

Anyone who has used or tested a CPU will tell you that the clock frequency being higher on one CPU or another doesn’t necessarily mean higher performance. Too bad Asus didn't mention a 3DMark05 score so we could compare the Core i7 directly to the Phenom II.
