Intel Reveals “Performance Maximizer” Auto Overclocking Tool

As much as we love the BIOS diving, tinkering and trial and error that’s involved in manual CPU overclocking, we cannot deny that many PC builders find the process boring or overly time intensive. 

In recent years, AMD has made CPU overclocking a little easier using their Ryzen Master utility, and Nvidia has created OC scanner to get the most out of their latest graphics cards. Now it’s Intel’s turn to make overclocking that little bit easier, with their “Intel Performance Maximiser Tool” being able to automatically determine how far your CPU’s speeds can be increased. 

When it launches next month, Intel’s performance Maximiser will be compatible with Intel’s 9th Generation of Coffee Lake K-series CPUs, but only for i5 models and above. This applies to Intel’s i9-9900K, i9-9900KF, i7-9700K, i7-9700KF, i5-9600K and i9-9600KF. 

In their Computex demo, Intel managed to get an i7-9700K processor to move from its all-core boost clocks of 4.6GHz to 5.2GHz, providing a considerable boost to system performance. Intel’s performance Maximizer tool will also adjust this overclock over time to keep getting the most out of systems, which eventually will include lower overclocks if your processors potential degrades.

Intel’s Performance Maximizer tool will release in mid-June and is likely to be upgraded to support all future overclockable desktop series processors.
