AMD Breaks 8GHz Overclocking Record with Bulldozer CPUs - AMD Breaks 8GHz Overclocking Record with Bulldozer CPUs
Tue, September 13 2011 | 3:32PM | PermaLink Feedback?
AMD recently held a press event at their Austin headquarters, offering hands on time with the company’s upcoming Bulldozer-based FX-line of processors. Many of the details disclosed are still under NDA embargo, but AMD is allowing a sneak peek today to go along with a claimed Guinness World Record announcement. A team of overclocking enthusiasts and AMD engineers had a sampling of early AMD FX processors running at around 5GHz with high-end air and water-cooling, in the 6GHz range with phase-change cooling, and well over 8GHz on liquid-nitrogen and liquid-helium setups. Voltages of over 1.9v were used as well for some of the more extreme tests. The team had access to dozens of early FX processors and methodically worked through a batch of chips until ultimately hitting a peak of 8.429GHz using liquid-helium, breaking the previous world record of 8.309GHz for modern processor frequency.
