Despite the poor performance, the high frequency of the bulldozer CPU is really a cow. No one can exceed the limit frequency of 8.7GHz in more than 7 years.
In addition to the single-core limit frequency, overclockers are still testing the multi-core overclocking potential of the 8-core bulldozer FX-8350 processor. Overclocking player KIKOONE31 has increased the frequency of the FX-8350 processor to 7.669GHz and created a new running record.
The 7.7GHz frequency is 1GHz less than the highest 8.7GHz frequency, but the latter is a single core frequency. The new record of 7.7GHz is 8 cores and 8 threads, so it created a new record of 13.15 in the Cinbench R11.5 test.
This new record is only 0.01 points higher than the second place. The latter uses the FX-8350 to overclock to 7649MHz. It can be said that it is very difficult to increase the frequency record. It is really not easy to get the advantage of 0.01 points. The error may be enough. Neglected.
