AMD FX-8150 overclocked to 8030.15MHz

On Gigabyte 990FXA-UD7 motherboard


Just a day ahead of the official relase and a flood of reviews that will show the Bulldozer performance in details, Gigabyte has decided to post a little preview of what AMD's FX-8150 is capable of by overclocking it to 8030.15MHz.

The overclocking was done on Gigabyte's 990FXA-UD7 motherboard and the FX-8150 was cooled to -192°C thanks to some LN2. The confirmed and validated result was set at 8030.15MHz. Of course, bear in mind that this was only two cores out of eight cores, and as you remember, AMD did a similar overclocking session with a 8429MHz score.

In Gigabyte's case, the FX-8150 was paired up 2GB of A-Data DDR3 memory clocked at 973.4MHz with 2-16-2-22 latencies and the CPU was running at 2V core voltage with a 292MHz bus speed and x27.5 multiplier.

In any case, it is still a nice overclocking result and tomorrow we will finally have a chance to see the FX-Series CPUs in some extensive and detailed reviews. Unfortunately, in some early previews, the FX-8150 was lagging behind Intel's 2600K but we'll know for sure tomorrow.

You can check out the validation page here.

Very nice indead. Really looking forward to Bulldozer's Offical Reviews and none of the nonesense previews going around the internet.

Fudzilla, that's not how GIGABYTE is spelled.

It should be written in capitals.

Very nice indeed. I can't wait to get one of these to pair with my H100 cooling system and see how far I can go.

@Super XP

I'm waiting for the same thing. The last 2 months has been a constant barrage of speculators, most of whom are talking out of the wrong orifice....

I will remind everyone that even the Pentium 4 can be overclocked to 8GHz. This Bulldozer 8GHz overclock was only active on one module aka 1.5 cores because that's how all high overclocks are done - with 1 core.

24/7 overclocks are the only overclocks that really matter when it comes to making purchasing decisions. If Gigabyte wants to convince enthusiasts they should focus on 24/7. Anyhow it's a bit early because you would need to compare this to other motherboards.

One Module = 2 cores not 1.5 cores...

Quoting Super XP:
One Module = 2 cores not 1.5 cores...


That all depends on what you consider a core is. Technically speaking it's not two complete cores.

In that case, nvidia is spelled wrong constantly too... it's nVIDIA. Am I cool like you now?

I think what we have here is a cultural misunderstandin g. In some places names must be in all caps.
