    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.

    Again ... completely, totally and utterly pointless. When you can do 7+ghz, and actually USE the computer, with an enclosed case for more than 1 day, THEN I'll be impressed.

    So the argument shifts from "Meh, unimpressive, when a chip is capable of doing that with more than one core, THEN I'll be impressed." to "Meh, when a chip is capable of doing that for everyday computing THEN I'll be impressed."

    Interesting.

    When a chip is capable of doing this with all 8 cores for everyday tasks while turning my hand into a vagina, THEN I'll be impressed.

    Would be interesting to see at least some benchmarks, even at lower speeds. Then we'll see how much better AMD is than Intel because Intel sucks and AMD is the best there is!!! AMD r0x0rs!!! Intel sux0rs!!! AMD FTWTFWT!!!!!!!!11111oneoneoneneoneo

    For all those who say it is pointless. It is functionally pointless but do you not have an interest in knowledge for knowledge sake. Do you not find this information interesting what so ever? If you did not why did you even click , on the link.

    I think this is pretty impressive and I certainly wonder what kind of benchmark scores it could get at a slower score. If bd could do 8ghz on 2 cores and piledriver can do 8ghz on 8 cores...

    What can this exact chip do on 2 cores if it can go that fast on 8?

    Just like your post. First you all complain AMD isn't clocking all cores, that happens and its still pointless huh? Wouldn't be pointless if it was a 3770K. Both AMD and Intel do this. In fact Intel was the first to do this don't go selling yourself short Intel was the first to start disabling half the processor to clock. Even those old Pentium 4's and Celerons had many many things disabled. Starting with internal error correcting.

    Because most likely they're a bunch of Intel fanboys who like to belittle anything AMD related......Pretty sad & immature if you ask me -_-
