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.

I had to...sorry haha
I will take my "faster" computer over a slow one, why do we upgrade our pc's in the first place? to make them slower? :-) right.....
A10 is already faster than i3 at most things at stock speed.
Not to be troll, but I really don't think this would help AMD that much,. if only they could put more effort and resources in increasing the IPCs of their desktop CPUs, that would definitely put them in a better stand against Intel.
A 100W APU vs a 65W i3 is actually a significant consideration. A "dramatic" increase in the efficiency of their CPUs would make them an ideal for system builders- especially on ASIA where electricity charges is higher.
In a real world setup this is not possible as I'm sure EXTREME cooling measures were in place. Liquid Nitrogen being #1. This just shows that anything is possible.
