GIGABYTE Shatters AMD ‘Trinity’ APU Speed Record
 
Gigabyte’s own overclocking team was in Taiwan last week where they achieved a massive 7.86GHz on an AMD 5800K APU, more than twice the stock speed of 3.8GHz.

AMD have always clocked well, even if the architecture is behind.

Lovin' the new records though.

Not true. The Phenom 1's clocked like shit. 200-500mhz overlock on BE cpus. :blarg:

Very true on this one. I had a 9950 BE and if I remember right ~3.2 GHz was the max clock speed I could get out of it, so that's a 600 MHz overclock. Other then that I think every other gen of cpu was decent in that aspect.

My 9950BE will not go above 3GHz without unreasonable voltage. :(
I should have gone with the then-new i7s even if they were so much more expensive.
Haswell here I come! No more slow PCs for me.

this is on ln2 mac junky don't expect to just oc something to these levels. my guess is full pot no cold bugs of any kind and speed bases just flat out going max clocks. amd had had huge oc's for awhile now. 7.8ghz is pretty impressive for a apu tho must admit.

Of course it's on some silly expensive cooling and most likely on a single core too. But thats what they do for records.
