Near the limits of what other chips of the same architecture can usually do, sure it can.
These are obviously high leakage parts binned for speed, so an enormous increase in power and heat should be expected.

Almost certainly just binned Vishera, yes.
The idea they would make a new chip, and release for something like this first, is laughable.

I wouldn't expect voltages this high. High leakage parts OC better with lower voltage, they just have huge current draw.
I would still expect higher stock VIDs than most FX-8350s though.

Actually, in many cases, it is.
More often than not, all of my fastest processors are near fully loaded 24/7, 365.

I'm heavily CPU limited in Planetside 2 with a 4.3GHz SB-E and even a 4.7GHz SB.
I'd be more CPU limited with a 5GHz Vishera.

Exactly the same as a 5GHz FX-8350.

High-end overclocking orient boards can handle well in excess of this.
