AMD FX-8150 Gets Pushed Over 9GHz in Extreme Overclock
Bulldozer goes very, very fast.
Records were meant to be broken. Earlier in the week we told you about the impressive overclocking achievement for an AMD FX-8150 hitting over 8.8 GHz. Now be prepared for even more.
The very same ksin was able to push his setup even further, hitting a new high mark of over 9 GHz. The Asus Crosshair V Formula motherboard with only two cores enabled on the AMD FX-8150 was able to reach a clock speed of 9062.43 MHz (287.7 * 31.5).
It may not be an entirely practical implementation of the processor, but it's sure a very nice clock speed.
