How is it possible?

    Its not.

  • I thought the question was going to be how is it possible that people still come up with such dumb generic thread titles.

    Not likely with that hardware, but generically absurd clock speeds like this can be done with the right equipment (and no care for longevity or stability)

    Keep temperatures as close to 0 as you can (to make superconductors) and pump more voltage. Usually dry ice or liquid nitrogen, a lot of insulation, and patience

    Physics says you lied.

  • I remember when someone got a Pentium 4 to 8GHz.

    Going to guess that the "macmini" is a hackintosh of some sort, maybe even a VM.

    I occasionally saw something like that in some weirdo benchmarks that just add up the cores. So, if you have e.g. 4 cores at 2.1 GHz they present that as "8.4 GHz".

    The problem with democracy is that by definition > 85% of the voters are not particularly intelligent.

    No, the benchmark result makes me think it seems to be a real overclock.
    The special thing here is the CPU is an "U" series of Intel, of which the multiplier is not opened. It's really an impressive benchmark.

    • We are talking about a Macmini 8.1. Have a look at that thingy
    • We are talking about a Core i7-8559U with a base frequency of 2.7 GHz and a max turbo frequency of 4.5 GHz
    • We are talking about a benchmark that doesn't run for just a couple microseconds, so 8.46GHz would equate to about 3 fold overclocking. I doubt that's feasible.

    But I'm anyway not particularly interested in that, neither in apple stuff nor in overclocking. I merely tried to help by offering a possible explanation.

    Yeah cause this is totall a mac mini. And totally 8.5ghz not 7.
