AMD FX-8130P Processor Hits 5.1GHz on Air

Category: CPU's
Posted: 08:19PM

The upcoming AMD Bulldozer processors aren't even out yet, but that isn't stopping some performance numbers to leak out. One of the latest leaks is something rather promising, as an AMD FX-8130P processor, the flagship eight-core model, hit 5.1GHz on an air cooler. That number is staggering when you think about it, plus it appears the chip needed 1.59375 volts to hit that speed, but it did do it on an air cooler. There are some screenshots of the feat, plus a video, and the results speak for themselves. The motherboard used was an ASUS Crosshair Formula V and the cooler was a Noctua DH-14, so the hardware seems to be the right kind for an impressive overclock. For the record, the FX-8130P is supposedly clocked at 3.8GHz with a 125W TDP and 8MB L3 cache. The price should be set at $320, which if true, will make it hard to beat or resist.

i think this video is fake. the camera moves a lot and i've seen better tricks than this. i'm gonna say no unless more proof.
