AMD sets World Record for Fastest CPU

AMD today proudly announced that has achieved a new Guinness World Record for the “Highest Frequency of a Computer Processor,”by achieving the amazing speed of 8.429 GHz with its upcoming 8-core AMD FX desktop processor, which is expected to be available Q4 this year.

This world record has been achieved on Aug. 31, 2011, in Austin by “Team AMD FX,”a group of elite overclocking specialists working alongside top AMD technologists

“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. “Along with world-record frequencies, the AMD FX processor will enable an unrivaled enthusiast PC experience for the money – extreme multi-display gaming, mega-tasking and HD content creation.”

AMD also reveals that their upcoming AMD FX CPU will come with completely unlocked processor clock multipliers for easier overclocking and will include exclusive AMD software for fine-tune system performance.
