AMD FX CPU Overclocks its Way Into the Guinness Book of Records
Sunnyvale, California – AMD announced that its latest 8-core AMD FX CPU has been included into the Guinness Book of World Records under the Highest Frequency of a Computer Processor category.
This new APU achieved a top speed of 8.429GHz surpassing the previous entry of 8.308GHz. The record was set on August 31, 2011 in Texas by Team AMD FX, who will also be named in the Guinness book.
“The record-breaking processor speed that resides in the AMD FX CPU clearly demonstrates performance gains for the new AMD ‘Bulldozer’ multi-core architecture, which will provide x86 computing power for this CPU and future AMD Accelerated Processing Units,” said Chris Cloran, corporate vice president and general manager, Client Group at AMD.
