AMD A10-6800K Overclocked To 8.2 GHz, Breaks And Sets World Record

A Finnish group of Overclockers who call themselves 'The Stilt' have managed to score a world record using AMD's newest Richland architecture based A10-6800K APU and using the Asus F2A85-V Pro motherboard. Back in June, The Stilt had managed to score 8000.48 MHz with a bus clock of 126.99 MHz and applying 2.008 volts to the CPU. The new world record, set by the same group, managed to score an applaud-worthy 8203.01 MHz with a bus clock of 130.21 MHz, multiplier set at 63x and a, believe it or not, lower core voltage of 1.968 volts. The recently discovered x87 patch was also applied, which allowed the poor A10-6800K to post better SuperPi scores.

Thanks for clearing that up! In other words, this article was just a bit misleading. :ohwell:
The fx record which still stands was 1 -2 cores of 8 @ 8.35 this is four cores at 8.2.
I see this as more relevant and impressive.

Seriously though, OCs that benefit real world use interest me. This does not.

What can be done today on liquid can be done tomorrow on air. Get real. It is the OC community that push the chip makers.

I wouldn't run a production machine on an OC rig. Stability is much more important than a few Hz. It Hz so good!
