[Fud] 790GX Overclocks Phenom 3.4GHz

On air

It looks that the soon-to-be-launched AMD 790GX, a new IGP chipset, will definitely be a much better Phenom overclocker. The boards are expected at the end of this month and our sources managed to get a Phenom 9850 from 2.5GHz all the way to 3.4GHz.

It wouldn't be as interesting if they weren't using air cooling and a retail CPU picked up in a store, and we believe that they can get it even faster using water-cooling. The temperature was an acceptable 44°C and they needed 1.55V to make it run at this speed. As you can see, the CPU finished AMD's stability test at 3.4GHz or (17x200).

It looks that AMD engineers led by John Bruno did a great job, and we can simply say that the boards and chipsets are just getting better and better.

Phenom 9860 is available today for €163, and with a new board and such an overclock it can at least challenge Intel’s dual and quad- cores.

I know this was revealed before, but this gives slightly more information. The method by which SB750 aids overclocking I know is shrouded in mystery, but I came accross this picture on xtremesystems which may explain a bit more as to how AMD has achieved this:

AMD keeps tiptoeing up there.

Hopefully my next setup will be AMD / ATI. I really want to see some competition.
Bye Bye 775

i love the watermarked "confidential"

i want to upgrade my cpu before the AMD 45nm chips come out.......sigh, we'll see how this really goes, but intel's won my wallet sofar

EDIT: and why the double negative........it should read:

"It Wouldn't be as interesting if they were using a water cooling setup"

but then again, if i were writing the article i wouldn't have worded it that way so i guess it doesn't matter. I guess i'll look into AMD's "9860's"

I know what you mean. I really want to upgrade from this 3800+. As far as I know the 45nm's are still on track for volume production in the fourth quarter, at least as far as servers go. I might get a 5000BE just to keep me busy until then since they're dirt cheap right now and I wouldn't feel the need to upgrade my motherboard yet (until I can get SB750).

Same here man... I wanna build about the end of this month into next month based on 4850 and 4870's hitting shelves. Long time AMD/ATI fan and recently Intel has done it again with winning me over.

I dont get it, the phenom architecture hasnt changed besides the original bug, so if all of a sudden they can become overclocked, does that mean that there was nothing wrong with the architecture, its the chipsets that were preventing them from being overclocked this whole time?!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!!?!?

There wasn't anything ever wrong with the Phenom architecture (besides the much overpublicized TLB bug). Its biggest problem is the process it's built on, 65nm is just too big for a monolithic quad design thus the power consumption and heat output. All it needs is a little tweaking for single threaded performance and a die shrink and it'll be a very nice chip.

Dang 1.55V?????????? is that after the Vdroop? Thats a lot of voltage for just 3.4GHz.

of course its after vdroop, aint that much 65nm can take it.
