Overclocks like $hit?. How is that even possible. My FX 8120 runs @ 4.40GHz with all 8-Cores and low 1.375v (minor voltage bump) Rock Stable. 24/7. I was converting a large homemade film MOV to AVI while playing DOOM III BFG and all 8-Cores were taxed 100% and my 16GB of Dual Channel Ram was being taxed 80%. My game payed like warm butter. My Bulldozer runs COOL, does not break above 56C. The only time my PC froze for a second was just before the video finished converting.
These prices are well??? It may be an indication on how they perform, or AMD is trying to spark new life in sales. Either way, if they get that rumoured 15% performance improvement clock 4 clock, I'm in.
