AMD A10-6800K APU Overclocked to Record Breaking 8.2GHz

By - Source: HWBot.org | B 25 comments

Evidently not content with pushing AMD’s flagship A10-6800K to just over 8.0 GHz last month, Finnish overclocker “The Stilt” has set a new world record by overclocking the Richland APU to an incredible 8203.34 MHz utilizing a liquid nitrogen cooler that provided load and idle temperatures of -180°C and -186°C at an ambient temperature of 25°C.

The overclock was achieved with a 63.0x multiplier, a remarkably low core voltage of 1.968 V, and utilized an Asus F2A85-V Pro motherboard and 8 GB of Radeon PE 1866 memory clocked at 1041 MHz with timings of 10-11-10-27.

Further details are available at the source and at the following CPU-Z Validation URL.

    I find it great that he achieved that on a $130 motherboard, and not a ROG board.

    And with all 4 cores enabled. Nice! Another great job by The Stilt. :)

    No real world benefit to a pair of fake boobs? Heh, my friend, that is an extremely naive, narrow point of view. Just because it wont enhance milk production, does not mean they don't carry an obvious benefit.
    Regardless of anyone's moral feelings on the important issue of fake breasts, this, too, isn't meant to have a "real" benefit. Nobody is implying that this is great performance hardware. It's just a record- people do all sorts of extravagantly pointless BS to be a record holder. Hello, welcome to Earth, we like novel things.

    4 adverts in a row, Tom's, what's happening?

    On-topic: Just for my peace of mind, how much can you OC a 6800K on air, without voltage tweaks?

    Just in case you wanted to super heat nitrogen...

    I would love to see benchmarks.

    so it's as fast as a core i7 4770k now? :)

    Even at 8.2ghz i bet that is still slower then a 4.7ghz i7 haswell 4770k. And thats only using a 175 dollar liquid cool setup that is actually stable and can be used day to day easily. If at the same clockspeed haswell is at least 75% faster than it would beat this at 8.2 ghz since thats a 75% increase in clock speed.

    Probably continue to overclock it, at which point we'll probably be covering his exploits again :)

    Is not comparing a A10-6800k to a I7 4770K that costs more than twice the price a little deceptive? It would be like comparing a customized Honda Accord to a Mercedes SL something (sorry, I don't know nothing about cars). This overclocking record is just for the fun, just as I had friends (in the old days) who were competing to see who would go the fastest on their modified 50cc mopeds (it was in Europe). I am also tired of the AMD/Intel fanbois. Thos who prefer AMD, good. Those who prefer Intel, good. I recently bought an AMD processor to upgrade my desktop because it was simply gentler on my wallet (not only because of the price of the processor itself, but because I already had a nice AMD motherboard I didn't want to replace). I could have also gone to Intel if I had some prefectly working INTEL motherboard. AMD and INTEL both make great processors. Period. Buy one or the other, but don't call those who made a different choice stupid or worst.

    I am not one to call people out but to those that turned this into another AMD this and that thread then you probably have failed to see the achievement and you are also probably not a overclocker and you are posting your worthless fanboi opinions in the wrong thread.

    Kindly refrain from turning everything into a Intel circle jerk for the sake of sanity of all those that don't give a crap. Thank you.

    Wow, I must say nicely done.

    I must say that most of my builds are of the AMD variety (cheaper, better iGPU, and more than sufficient power for my needs) and while I have tweaked a few setups, I've not come close to this type of overclock...

    I find this to be quite amazing. Although what I'm interested in is how much I can OC my FX4300 and FX4100 on the stock cooler. Not that they perform badly by any stretch. I just want them to crunch faster for free :)

    "I am also tired of the AMD/Intel fanbois. Thos who prefer AMD, good. Those who prefer Intel, good."

    The reason this happens is because intel fanboys include the ugliest and most mean spirited people. They are just haters and are intolerant of anyone who doesn't get intel or says anything good about AMD. I wish they would grow up, but many never will.
