They say I can't raise the baseclock multiplier...(AMD Llano 3850)

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

This article says so(June, 2011)
http://www.legitreviews.com/article/1687/1/

So does this one(Aug, 2011)
http://www.legitreviews.com/article/1649/17/

Same here(June 2011)
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/...no,2975-7.html

And even this ridiculous video shows the multiplier is untouched(Jul, 2011)


My processor is not the supposed "black edition" that Tom's mentioned would have this feature unlocked so why was I able to do this:

?

I may be pretty new to OC'n but that sure looks like it says 99.99x37 to me.
APU what?

It's mine.

I just did some benchmarking and there's no difference between 2.9 and 3.7 so I ramped the multiplier up as high as it would go, 47, for 4.7GHz and (surprise)still nothing. Is this a normal thing?


2.9GHz


3.7GHz


4.7GHz

That's cause it's not actually increasing your CPU frequency.

Dropping the multiplier down to its lowest setting, 8 for 800MHz, there was definitely a difference... I don't get understand. Should I no longer believe all of the numbers I see when people are OC'n their rigs? I've obviously proven these numbers can be fudged.

Have you tried using CPUz directly? It may be a software error unless you are doing the overclocking in the BIOS.

It really doesn't matter what programs unfortunately, they all simply read your FSBxMulti and output your frequency. I've actually done this with several locked multi CPUs, it shows a higher multi and therefore reads a higher freq, but freq does not actually increase. You are simply tricking the programs

It's a known bug.

The Bios can say it will raise, but it doesn't actually do anything.

I'm pretty sure they already have a bios update to fix it.
