AMD ON TOP AGAIN?

Recommended Posts

so i just jumped on facebook and what is the 1st post i see Asus North America.

 

 

ASUS North America

‎8429.38MHz! You've seen the pictures, now watch the video. New world record CPU Frequency set by AMD's FX Bulldozer CPU on an ASUS Crosshair V Formula motherboard.

 

 

i see its only running on 2 cores.

 

what does everyone think does AMD really have a chance once again?

well it beat the previus record by a fair margin 8308.94 MHz with an Intel Celeron 352 (65 nm)

we just have to hope the chips have better performance per clock and can run a high 24\7 oc without insane levels of vcore

Jeruselem, i agree there but i just added that so people cant say yeah well there only on 2 cores etc.

 

Dasa, yeah i think amd should hold this record for awhile it is a nice jump, id like to know what model FX it was they used.

i sure hope they do have better performance per clock, need benchmarks to come out already.

i see 3.9Ghz (4.5Ghz Turbo) stock on there "top model" not sure if thats true but if it is id like to see what they hit on air oc'd like the 2500k n 2600k.

i dont have the bandwidth left to watch this so perhaps someone can give us the gist of it

 

 

AMD "Bulldozer" FX Model 8150 CPU Overclocking Preview

 

If you are wondering how well the new AMD FX CPU will overclock, you are not alone. AMD let us have some behind-the-scenes access a couple of weeks ago and is now allowing us to show off the results. We shot a lot of video and show you AMD FX overclocking on water, phase change, and liquid nitrogen.

 

AMD FX Overclocking Preview

 

AMD had us and a few others down to its Austin, Texas offices a couple of weeks ago and gave us quite and overclocking show with its new FX processors. We carried our cameras along in hopes to give you a front row seat at the event and hopefully whet your appetite for AMD's upcoming FX CPUs. I personally left the event feeling more positive about the upcoming FX than I have in a long time. While we can't tell you about actual performance and IPC, we can show you what the CPU is capable of in the hands of some very skilled overclockers.

 

The video below will outline overclocking the AMD FX 8150 with a simple water setup, then phase change and finally liquid nitrogen. All three configurations are impressive.

 

AMD FX overclocking at its finest! If the enthusiasts can in fact expect mid-4GHz overclocks with the lesser priced model 8120 processors using aggressive air and sealed water cooling configurations, I would suggest AMD will possibly do good at satisfying many of those waiting on its 8-core processors for so long now.

@dasa it seems pretty promising the normal end user overclock (using "aggressive air", which they define as an antec watercooler that anyone could install I would say that that would mean a 920) was 4.8ghz at 1.5v which for an AMD cpu (if the phenom is comparable) is pretty low. (SPECULATION) My 1055T runs at 1.475 and only gets 3.8ghz and it Bulldozer has the temp range of the phenoms that'll mean about 40-50 degrees in linpack at that voltage.

 

They are essentially outlining that Bulldozer responds very well with a bit of overclocking (they dont show any benchmarks though), that it has no cold bug and that it is very voltage tolerant (under LN2 they put it up to 2v)

they end up with LN2 @ 8.036Ghz @ 2v with a temp of -186 degrees C.

 

I like what I'm seeing but its a bit of a shame that it doesn't show any benchmarks. The people that were there got to see it running Haven @4.8/WC which considering that the rig had at least a 6950 (judging by length alone) but looks more like a 6990 to me I would say that even they didn't get a fair idea of CPU performance.

It wasn't really about the benchmarks or anything like that, it was simply to see how high you can get that clock. In reality it doesn't really mean much, but when you're overclocking in this way you get a nerdy satisfaction inside of you when you see how far you can push the limit, when the number is right infront of you.

No I understand that its just a shame that we didn't get to see any performance numbers at those clocks (I am aware that the phase and LN2 aren't stable).

 

 

 

I like big numbers as much as the next guy
