AMD FX-8150 Gets Pushed Over 9GHz in Extreme Overclock

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.

(Thanks to Luna for the tip!)

    "This amazing OC that is approaching 1 THz"

    9 GHz is approaching 1000 GHz?

    Froznic... It's purely for the challenge and record breaking.

    Why do people have to say stupid **** that literally has no correlation to the article?

    Try to bench it I bet it will jump out of the socket. :P

    I hope Intel & AMD plan to ramp up the clock speed bit by bit.. Because not all applications support multi core processing. Great overclock.

    TWO cores only.
