As can be seen, the above overclock not only increases the overall system score, but also reduces the amount of time programs take to open, the speed at which the computer boots up and the general functioning of the workstation.
We also did another quick test involving a basic, high quality Revit render. Despite what one might think, rendering in Revit is handled almost exclusively by the CPU, and can also scale according to the number of cores the CPU has. So in other words, when it comes to rendering in Revit, the more cores the better!
Although this particular CPU being used is advertised as “5Ghz” by Intel, what the majority of people don’t know is that in stock form, this is only achieved on only 1 of the 8 cores.
So when it comes to the standard, stock clock speeds of the Intel Core i9, this would be 3.6Ghz, but it can bump one processor core to 5GHz as mentioned above, four cores to 4.8GHz, and all eight to 4.6GHz (if you are lucky!) – on 8 cores we normally only see 4.2Ghz in stock form at best.). If a big task is running on one core, that one kicks up to 5GHz, while the others slow down to minimize the heat output. Rendering in Revit for example drops the total CPU speed all the way down to 4.1Ghz on all cores in stock form.
Our optimised and overclocked Vulcan CPU used in this build on the other hand, has the CPU cores in sync, and has you working on normal modeling single core tasks at 5Ghz and rendering at 4.7-4.8Ghz on all cores, all the time! This can be achieved safely and reliably thanks to many years of technical know-how as well as the latest in CPU cooling technologies used by Modena Computers.
Below is the before and after render times for the stock VS overclocked Vulcan workstation.
