Overclockers Take AMD A10-5800K APU to 7.87 GHz
Gigabyte's overclocking team was able to overclock AMD’s A10-5800K APU to a record 7.87 GHz, up from a stock 3.8 GHz.
Gigabyte's 'The Killers' team, which consisted of HiCookie, S.Dougal and John Lam, used a F2A85X-UP4 motherboard and demonstrated the CPU at an AMD Extreme OC show November 20 in Taipei. "We are extremely excited with this OC result because the F2A85X-UP4 is the first motherboard from Gigabyte to use our new Ultra Durable 5 technology - so the OC record is a testament to the high caliber of components that we use on our products," said Henry Kao, vice president of the company's Motherboard Business Unit, in a prepared statement.
Gigabyte said that The Killers also overclocked an AMD FX8350 processor to 8.47 GHz on a Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 board.
