AMD Bulldozer FX-8150 break world record, 8.429MHz!
AMD latest desktop processors, Bulldozer, has been long awaited by AMD processors fans as well as various PCEnthusiast. Unfortunately with such a strict NDA, until now we didnt find very much information about him, particularly about the overclockability of this processor. But only a few moments ago, the mystery about the AMD Bulldozer overclockability of this began to unfold when a few extreme overclockers AMD: macci, chew *, 64NOMIS, AJS, and Hardman gathered then began to overclock AMD Bulldozer FX-8150 up to 8429 Mhz!
Achievement of high CPU clock is not foreign to AMD, because AMD processors are generally extreme overclock using LN2 cooling usually are able to produce exceptional clockspeed. There are also some previous AMD processors, such as Phenom X4 II BE 955 and 965, which can reach 7 GHz clock with LN2 cooling. However AMD Bulldozer FX-8150 8.4 Ghz Clock achieved by this time truly remarkable because it is a first for AMD through the boundaries of 8 GHz, which can only be achieved during an Intel Pentium 4 / Celeron Cedar Mill.
AMD Bulldozer which passed the speed of 8.4Ghz is cooled using Liquid Helium that more extreme cooling than Liquid Nitrogen, the temperature is lower than -230 C (LN2 ‘only’-196C). Here’s a video of AMD when the record-breaking takes place:
With the remarkable results of this extreme, it seems AMD Bulldozer FX-8150 will be a new ‘toy’ by overclocking fans and especially the extreme overclockers.
