In a competition she organized Gigabyte, Overclocker of Hong Kong broke the record in Oberclock to the processor AMD Bringing it to an unprecedented frequency
Using a motherboard type GA-890FXA-UD7, The flagship of Gigabyte, which according to the participants of the competition did not undergo any physical change, managed the Overclocker Mad222 Bring the CPUPhenom II X4 965 BE (Note that this is the standard version and not Version TWKRBasic frequency of 3.4GHz To a completely irrational frequency of 7344MHz. The record was set at the annual OVERCLOCK event organized by Gigabyte And HWBot site, and was made possible by the use of liquid nitrogen.
For years they were heard Complaints against processors AMD, Which do not excel in Overclock like those of Intel. However, given the set peak, there are no home processors AMD Any problem getting to high frequencies with respect, the opposite is true. The area left for the company to work on is the ability of processors to reach frequencies above 4.5GHz through "home" cooling such as air or water. Intel's processors excel in this area, Especially in recent generations, And we Hopefully the next generation of processors AMD, It will also have a similar reputation.
Overclocking to a processor to a speed of more than 100 A percentage of the declared speed (as demonstrated in the last competition) is becoming almost routine by using proper cooling. However, it is not possible to work at these frequencies for long periods of time since Cooling The nitrogen used is not enough for long.
