AMD FX-8350 Vishera 8-Core Overclocked to 7,442.83 MHz

There is little that can persuade prospective customers that a CPU is powerful like a good old fashioned overclocking session.

Since AMD's Vishera 8-core central processor needs all the help it can get, according to some, news that a record overclock has been achieved definitely puts a nice ring on things. The validation is here. Though not close to the over 8 GHz scored by Bulldozer back in 2011, the speed of 7442.83 MHz attained with the FX-8350 was still record-breaking. For Vishera chips at least. Gigabyte’s GA-990FXA-UD7 AM3+ Motherboard was used in the test. The CPU had only two out of eight cores enabled and the VCore was set at 1.968V.

No one expects regular customers to actually perform such radical clock tweaking, of course. Still, in light of this new achievement, there is more cause to believe previous reassurances that even air and standard watercoolers can handle 5-5.5 GHz with no problem. Overall, Vishera doesn't seem like such a bad deal for under $200 / 200 Euro.
