AMD A8-3870K 5.87Ghz CPU, 1.327Ghz GPU Overclock ‘suicide-run’
A Japanese overclocker hits an amazing 121% GPU clock speed incease and a 96% CPU overclock in a “suicide-run”. Using an AMD A8-3870K Black Edition Processor, a group of tech-savvy overclockers at OverclockWorks, a tech community dedicated to overclocking, hit an astonishing 5.875Ghz at 1.872v.
The GPU, an integrated Radeon HD 6550D, was pushed from 600Mhz to 1.327Ghz. While the system was unstable to run any benchmarks, the number are still very impressive. “based clock in 125MHz, magnification ratio in 47, it set core voltage to 1.872V result, respectively actualized CPU clock 5,875.5MHz, it arrived in 1,327MHz where also the GPU clock reaches 2 times that or more rating 600MHz,” the overclocker said on its website.
