AMD FX-8130P pushed to 5.1GHz on air
Originaly posted on fudzilla: AMD FX-8130P pushed to 5.1GHz on air
" Bulldozer in sixth gear
A Czech bloke has managed to get hold of a Bulldozer engineering sample and run it through its paces.
He ran a couple of tests and pushed the 3.8GHz FX-8130P to 5.1GHz, on air and with at a core voltage of 1.524V. The sample was apparently perfectly stable in SuperPi, while it was downcloked to 4.85GHz in Cinebench.
You can check out the screens Edit. Site Removed - SKYMTL

utube video of the cpu itself: YouTube - ‪Next "FX weekend" TEASER - 5,1 GHz on AIR!‬‏
nice,so lets say 4.5 ghz for absolute stabilita!
yeah not shure but even if the chip preforms within 10% of sb cpu it will be a good deal for folks even IF it is 8 cores @ 4.5 ghz !! :)
multithreading shouldnt be an issue with dozer, waiting on a proper review of per thread
capabilities. bioses should be pretty mature...havent really checked out the whole vid but did he
run anything like cinebench or the like?
edit : he did indeed but covered the numbers up
someone in the cinebench thread get a ruler out lol!
in the blogpost there is a ss of cinebench @ 4.8x
Now I am interested in seeing the actual release chips and some reviews/benchmarks of them. I wonder how much power it draws and how much heat it is pushing out at that speed.
I feel in the end, peaple that did not wait for the BD chips to arive & jump onto the SB train (like most of the lemmings would have done anyways) will regret it. I'm looking at prices of AM3+ boards atm & unless I'm totaly wrong here but it looks like BD ready boards are available at cheaper prices then the SB ones + IB will probly have intel force the flock to upgrade there boards again.
186W TDP? Is it just me?
well for 150 on the amd side you need to shell another..what..50-100 on the intel side? :) board wise
186,saw that,thats probably max before it nukes your joint out. :p
Well if AMD can come close to intel's per clock per core performance their 8 core chips are supposed to be similarly priced to i7 2600k. So essentially the big gain will be on the 2500k where their six cores should really kick 4 core ass. Unless I completely wrong on the pricing but I saw some chart of an apparent "leak" somewhere.
