AMD FX Sets a Guinness World record


The AMD FX CPU 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.
“We applaud AMD for their entry into Guinness World Records® for achieving the Highest Frequency of a Computer Processor,” said Freddie Hoff, adjudicator for Guinness World Records.

AMD is already having fastest Graphic card and now AMD FX desktop processor has Guinness World Record for the fastest running CPU at 8.429GHz. What will be next? Yes, that comes into everyone’s mind. AMD has developed technology in efficient way. AMD provides technology in a economical price’s and hope it will continue the same.

AMD FX CPU “Bulldozer” is a clock eating monster; with multiplier unlocked throughout the range appear to scale with cold. The 5 GHz frequencies were achieved using only air or sub -$100 water cooling solutions as said by AMD blog.

Note:  Overclocking and extreme cooling will void your hardware warranties and could cause serious damage to your PC hardware. We destroy motherboards, processors, and graphics cards at an alarming rate doing it. Liquid Helium and Liquid Nitrogen are incredibly dangerous in untrained hands and among some of the coldest substances in the universe. This record was achieved by some of the most experienced and methodical overclockers in the world and you should not attempt to recreate this experiment without major safety precautions and seriously thinking about the potential consequences of your actions.
