>AMD Breaks Overclocking World Record
>AMD has just hit ludicrous speed. The new FX-8150, a $266 processor (rumored price) has just hit 8.4 GHZ. That’s 8 cores at 8.4 ghz.
See the attempt here:
And if you are thinking that it just did well because of the insane cooling measures, they hit 5 ghz with “air and sub-$100 water cooling solutions.” Sounds like it’s going to be a good chip whenever it comes out. There is still no release date on the Bulldozer desktop architecture but there has been a rumor for an October 1 release.
