Phenom FX @4ghz beats 5ghz kentsfield
Reviewage - AMD Phenom FX - Kentsfield Beater

Or so the link says. Not much of a source, huh? :).

While I think its possible they are at 4ghz already, I reckon they're closer to low to mid 3.x ghz

Uh, last I checked, Phenom didn't even equal Kentsfield, clock-for-clock, let alone beat it. There's no way this is legit.

Edit: Not sure what to think about that screenshot. Between the discrepancy between the Overdrive and CPU-Z voltage reports? 4.0 Ghz and 1.475 Vcore giving temps of 53 degrees at 100% load? All (visible) core temps the same? Meh... not damning, but a little weird.

Yeah right, I'll take some of whatever they are smoking.

I wouldn't take CPUZ's word as 100% since it has many well known bugs reading voltages properly.

I have a bridge over the Hudson to sell you. Speaking of which, I've also got a Nigerian lottery ticket with YOUR name on it.

Hello kind sir of canada.

I am Alfred, a wealthy business man who, for some reason, has contacted you for your help in moving money across a border. While I could just take it out of a bank and move to another country, this concept eludes me. This is why I need your help, you will be rewarded handsomely.

sheesh, who the heck cares? Deos anyone here even KNOW how to make a processor do more than sizzle pixels? Like, I mean, cmon on! get with the program! Are you like running Enterprise Oracle or something? Oh I know! I know! your actually doing a load distributed round robin High availibility web server rack that can with stand a hundred thousand page access a min? Plus, connected to a back end dual processor database server? Its a freakin desktop! And actually, I dont think you can actually tell the differnace between AMD or INTEL unless you have some cheesy application that has a dodgy rep teling you otherwise. ANd htan, out comes all the disclaimers LoL, oh, its got bugs that cant read ACTUAL FSB volts, or something stupid LoL. Last AMD I had it rocked, last Intel I had, it rocked. LAst Geforece card I had, it was kewl, same with radeon. Heck, if it lets me pwn in games, I like it. Like a vehicle, it servers a purpose.
