AMD A10-5800K Capable of 6.50 GHz over LN2: Company

AMD's new A10-5800K "Trinity" APUs, launched earlier this week, are capable of extreme overclocking, something similarly-priced Intel processors can't claim, according to Adam Kozak, desktop products manager with the company. According to Kozak, the roughly $150 A10-5800K are capable of 6.50 GHz overclocked speeds, when augmented with liquid nitrogen cooling.

Overclocking capabilities give AMD's sub-$150 chips such as the A10-5800K, A8-5600K, and A6-5400K an edge over similarly-priced Intel chips. The cheapest overclockable chip from Intel's current lineup is the $220 Core i5-2500K. Based on the "Trinity" silicon, the A10-5800K ships with clock speeds of 3.80 GHz, which go up to 4.20 GHz with TurboCore. The chip features an unlocked base clock multiplier, which makes overclocking possible.

The fistful of chips i have here says it is. :p


And again, those 2D benches are @ 4 GHz. :p

Don't get me wrong.. I just wanna squish any unrealistic expectations.
I don't have baby I am looking to see how it compares to my old phenom ii@4ghz luckily I can't equal the memory clocks with my 790fx.

Are you implying that he couldn't bench higher than 4 GHz? :rolleyes:

No. Did I say THAT? Stock speed is 3.8 GHz w/4.2 GHz Turbo. :shadedshu I guess you missed the point too. :p

Not to mention they disabled half the chip for the 7GHz+.

It turbos to 4.0 GHz for all the cores.

:laugh:

I have many of these chips. Who do you think wrote the preview for this site. :p

Idle is not 4000 MHz.:laugh:


It's a way of skirting the NDA. It's not actual performance.
