Bulldozing a Record (1 Comments) (link)
 Wednesday, 14-September-2011  00:44:40 (GMT +10) - by Agg

AMD held an overclocking workshop recently to show off their Bulldozer CPUs. To quote TechWareLabs: In anticipation of the release of Bulldozer AMD flew a select few press down to Austin Texas to witness Bulldozer in action and watch them attempt to break the previous world record for highest frequency CPU. We watched as several trays of Bulldozer CPU's were brought out and tested by two of the best overclockers in the world. Coming in at a staggering 8.429GHz we have the video to prove AMD did it!

In fact, AMD have been awarded the Guinness World Record for "Highest Frequency of a Computer Processor". The AMD FX CPU, set to launch in the fourth quarter of 2011, achieved a top speed of 8.429 GHz, surpassing the previous record of 8.308 GHz. The record was set on Aug. 31, 2011, in Austin, Texas, by “Team AMD FX,” a group comprised of elite overclocking specialists working alongside top AMD technologists, who will also be named in the Guinness World Records.
