AMD A10-6800K “Richland” Sets New World Record @ 8.2GHz
Peter Donnell / 4 years ago
A Finnish overclockers who goes by the name of “The Stilt” has bagged him self a new world record for highest CPU overclock, no easy task given the clock speeds involved and that the benchmark for this becomes harder with every attempt.
Using the AMD A10-6800K and a huge amount of liquid nitrogen, The Stilt was able to blast 2.008 volts through the chip via the Asus F2A85-V Pro motherboard.
The first run scored him a taste 8000.48MHz with a bus clock of 126.99MHz, but that wasn’t the end for this run and he employed a so-called x87 fix which helped boost performance in SuperPi. On the second run he got the chip to 8203.01MHz using a bus clock speeds of 130.21MHz and a multiplier of 63.
