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.
Taking part in an AMD Extreme OC show overclocking demonstration in Taipei, Taiwan, members of Gigabyte’s overclocking team The Killers were able to set not just one, but two new records, pushing the AMD 5800K to 7.86GHz on a GIGABYTE F2A85X-UP4 motherboard, and the AMD FX8350 was clocked at 8.47GHz on a GIGABYTE 990FXA-UD3 motherboard.

“This new record underlines just how much potential performance can be unleashed by our new Trinity platform, clearly demonstrating how GIGABYTE Ultra Durable motherboards help enthusiasts get the absolute maximum performance from their unlocked AMD APUs,” said Michael Liao, Vice President, Sales of AMD.
“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 GIGAGYTE Motherboard Business Unit. “These results solidify GIGABYTE’s position as the go-to platform for AMD overclocking enthusiasts.”
