AMD A10-5800K Cracks 7.446 GHz

Beating their own OC record of 7.384 GHz set earlier this week, overclocker alvinkenzo took the $122 AMD A10-5800K APU all the way up to 7446.41 MHz, achieved with a base clock frequency of 120.1 MHz and 62.0x multiplier. The core voltage was set at 1.992V, and one of the two modules were disabled, a discrete graphics card was used. Memory speed wasn't tinkered with, at DDR3-1600 MHz, a pair of G.Skill-made modules were used in dual-channel configuration. Seating it all was MSI FM2-A85XA-G65 motherboard. The CPU-Z validation for the feat can be found here.

This is just an epeen thing.
Yep, pretty much.
Nothing to see here really.
Nope, it's a CPU-Z validation at 7.446 GHz, nothing more, nothing less. What it really means, whether it is relevant to anything you think is constructive or relevant is not the point or the aim to as why it was done.

Agreed. :respect:

I did notice, and have noticed Intel pulling the same crap too. But some ignorant people start attacking anyone or anything they feel threatens their shallow ideas of being the best, or correct.


No one here would be that silly though right?

If you read all my posts on this I say that it is meaningless with out some BM.
When they did this on the Intel chip they were able to at the very least do a Super-Pi RUN. What gets me is they only managed to do a CPU-Z validation run. So what can we learn from this? Nothing, What can we learn from the Other? That it is FAST! http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showthread.php?t=163114 So were is the Super-Pi run from this OC? That is all. :shadedshu

So what? As I mentioned and you stated you agreed to, it is what it is. Sometimes people use Intel CPU's to try to get a CPU-Z validation as well. Your point is moot.

Yes it is what it is. :respect: I just wished they would do a run of supper-Pi, I bet that thing would be PHENOMENAL! It just leaves me wanting more is all. And all upsad when they do not deliver.

Ask alvinkenzo, the guy who did the overclocking.

LOL. I do not have a clue how to get a hold of him. LOL. Besides that why would he even do that just for me? :laugh:

I do hope that if he dose another run he adds it though. can you just imagine how fast that monster would be at them speeds? GOD! :D

Almost three times as fast.


AMD needs to get their shit together and get that cache latency fixed before they have to fire everyone to make up for shitty engineering.

That is sweet! I love it! :respect:

I can only imagine how much faster it would be at the supper clock here!

Super Pi isn't exactly the end all of computing benchmarks...

In the price range of the A10-5800K there is the i3-3220

*Trying not to get too aggressive here*

Ok, first off overclocking is pushing past the standard default speed of a piece of hardware. That much we should all know, here is the next part... How far can you push it? To some people enjoying competition entails playing computer games, racing cars, ping pong, curling, go fish, nuclear arms race, and competitive eating. So what if I were to tell you that there are people who like computer hardware and overclocking, you would agree I think. Next I would tell you that 2 people want to challenge each other to see who can get their computer hardware to run benchmarks the fastest - game, 3d, computational, system, cpu speed, ram speed, ram bandwith, network, and on and on... There are various types of these that with the internet people have become more competitive and want to compete globally ( go to HWBot.org and read, absorb knowledge, learn ). This is what has happened here, it is people trying to go the fastest in ____ with _____ . That simple, nothing more than that. Other than it takes time, effort, money, dead hardware, patience, time, time, and more patience to do ( not to mention skill). To dismiss that is commonplace but its hard to tell from a press release. If someone sets a record with some hardware that from your company it would be a wasted opportunity to get some press about that. Hence why you see this now and again.

For benchers the systems used are not in cases and used for daily tasks. Think of it like cars - you have your miata that you drive to the flower shop daily, then you have the SCCA miatas that kick ass on the weekends on race tracks... Two different uses yet it is the same car. or we could go with the school bus... You may drive the short bus like your driving Ms Daisy, but what about Billy Bob who bought himself a short bus and is dropping in a jet engine ( on the track day he sets a track record but he blew himself to $*%# when he couldn't stop). The parallels are made, you don't drive a jet engine school bus for the city.

The CPUz validation benchmark is one of many different benchmarks, it is to see how fast the processor can go (read: not stable, able to play games, teaching in geography, being the world's most interesting CPU). Commonly called suicide runs, this is what it is going all out to get that speed and set that mark.

You can definitely go to HWBot.org and learn more about the global scale of this, and maybe talk to benching members or TPU's HWBot team while you are at it.

People do it because they enjoy it, its as simple as that really.

With that said I will end this, even without correcting stuff I saw in posts (which I so want to do :/ ). Though I actually had fun writing this so take it or not I am just dropping this here, knowing that sometimes you can't get through to people. But I can try and here it is.
