Gigabyte recently announced that it will decentralize the Instant 6GHz function to Z690 series motherboards. Users can upgrade it by updating the BIOS. This function currently supports Core i9-13900K and Core i7-13700K.
The Instant 6GHz function is an automatic overclocking technology launched by GIGABYTE. After enabling this function, users do not need to make complicated settings. The system will automatically adjust the CPU voltage and voltage correction curve, and automatically overclock two large cores to 6GHz at most. This feature was only available for Z790 series motherboards when it was first launched.
The Core i9-13900K single-core boost clock is 5.8GHz. After the Instant 6GHz function is turned on, the clock increases by 0.2GHz; the Core i7-13700K single-core boost clock is 5.4GHz, and the boost increase can reach 0.6GHz.
This function is similar to the Max Performance Profile technology in GIGABYTE motherboards. The principle is to automatically adjust the CPU voltage, load curve, and frequency through the system. Max Performance Profile has a wide range of applications, and the clock increase is small, but it can be overclocked for large cores and small cores at the same time; Instant 6GHz frequency increase is relatively large, but only for large cores.
GIGABYTE has uploaded the BIOS of the Z690 motherboard supporting the Instant 6GHz function, and users can download it by themselves and upgrade it through Q-Flash Plus and other methods.
