AMD FX-8350 Overclocked to 8.176 GHz with 8 Cores Enabled

Last week's 7.443 GHz overclocking feat of the AMD FX-8350 certainly wasn't the last of it, for the chip. Korean overclocker NAMEGT achieved a clock speed of 8176.47 MHz, with all eight cores enabled, and both DRAM channels populated. 8176.47 MHz was achieved with a base clock of 281.94 MHz, multiplier of 29X, and 1.932V to fuel the chip. ASUS ROG Crosshair V Formula-Z motherboard and Samsung-made DDR3 memory was used. The best performing chip was binned from two 12-chip trays. Cooling it all was trusty liquid nitrogen. Find the CPU-Z validation here, and HWBot certification here.

FYFI13, you've gone silent :)

I'm sure you are still digging out the Piledriver vs Phenom II gaming benchmarks.

It's OK. I know you won't repond or reply to my request.
Sorry, i've been busy. I just tried to find that review and i can't, but i'm not surprised to be honest as i've spent almost all tuesday on reading reviews. I'll give another go once i'm home.

Hand me one and a board I guarantee I can do it with an H70.

I think it's a close 2nd....you decided to take the #1 spot yourself!!



I think its pretty amazing, can't deny that those numbers are super sexxy. Too bad it would appear that performance is still behind Intel, and AMD's current growth pattern doesn't really show them catching up to Intel anytime soon....thus Intel will still be able to keep their prices up and do not necessarily have to become more competitive. This is why prices rarely vary away from the MSRP Intel lists throughout the lifespan of their products....So we lose as consumers, just saying....

Depends on the benchmark

FX 8350 is definitely an improvement over the FX 8150. This s positive and shows AMD is on the right track, we can only imagine the Steamroller to add to the performance.

Man! 8+ghz on 8 cores... never though i see the day...

Guess it could run benchmarks at ~7ghz on 8 cores?
Would be nice to see that

Anyways really great overclock :toast:

Im excited!!!! This is a great feat ! Im drooling in anticipation!! One can only imagine what intel will unleash if it takes Amd seriously. If this be the end of the desktop era.....Both sides should go all out and end it with a BOOOOOOOM!!!!!!!

True enthusiast/ nut here.....When i didnt want to run up a credit bill I've cashed in aluminum cans and scrap copper/ steel to get extra funds for my "hobby"{surprised at how much i get for junk) And most importantly sell off old parts:laugh:

well if AMD did this and was a wake up call for them, they probably aint going to slack off on SR. Dont get me wrong Id rather have great chips on a Mature Process than a young process
