CPU-Z developers say that overclocking of Gigabyte’s 8GHz Alder Lake is impossible

Motherboard manufacturers love PR.

All of these are designed to demonstrate the unparalleled strength of a certain motherboard or hardware.

A week after the introduction of Intel’s 12th-generation processors, motherboard and memory manufacturers can show off their overclocking muscles. A new press release is issued every day, detailing the latest records.
