A Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 motherboard was used for the test benchIt isn't every day that a new overclocking record is set, even though the past couple of months saw an unusually high number of CPU-Z validations.
Since the F2A85X-UP4 motherboard is the one used as a test bench here, Gigabyte is proud to announce the latest high score achieved by AMD's A10 5800K accelerated processing unit (Trinity APU).
The clock speed attained was of 8.47 GHz, although only two of the four cores were enabled during the session.
During the same competition (AMD Extreme OC show on 20 November in Taipei Taiwan), the GIGABYTE F2A85X-UP4 motherboard was used to push the same chip to 7.86GHz.
A very high frequency, to be sure, although the gap between it and the new top score is large.
In addition to the CPUID validation, skeptics can check out the HWBOT validation here.
