AMD Phenom II X4 955 Overclocked to 7.1 GHz

I don't know anything about AMD CPUs as I've never built one, but I do find it interesting they blanked out the core voltage field in CPU-Z. Why can't some of these folks give us some FPS benchmarks for fun?

Jeeze, and I thought I was doing good with a little E8400 that has hit 4.4GHz on air stable under Prime95. (Run it at 4.2 full time).

Sir, that's some funky math :). GHz do not represent processing power unless you restrict the comparison to a particular architecture. You can instead do 4 * core_flops for an idea of how powerful the CPU is. This allows you to compare the number with other CPUs even with different architectures. Just my 2$/100.
 
heh a Pentium 4 years ago hit 7.3 but sadly enough a stock E6600 (2.4ghz) blows it in superpi, now 4 cores capable - amazing.

Is that all 4 cores, cache etc? and how solid and for how long?

Well, what was the superpi score? I read about 5 months ago about someone breaking 7GHz with an E8600, and they were happy to report their superpi 1M score of just under 7 sec. I don't know what the maximum overclock has been with an intel core2 quadcore, but I don't think they will go as high as the dual cores.

Quite true! I just wanted to put it in to very basic terms and marvel at the sheer amount of clock speed.

7.1ghz Is very impressive in my opinion.

I hope that 28nm cpus will get us to 3.6-3.8ghz stock and 4.2-4.6ghz overclocked.... I'm just dreaming though.

Can it play Crysis? (Or GTA IV)

Seriously though, extreme overclocking is pretty pointless as they only showcase the architecture and nothing else. Performance/clock and performance/power are thrown out the window at those speeds. I’d love to have a 10GHz 16 core i7 to run GTA IV though.

Actually, the record of 8.2GHz refers to a single core Celeron class CPU.

If you restrict yourself to a quad vs quad comparison it is
AMD - 7.1GHz
Intel - 6.2GHz (Yorkfield; Kentsfield was ~5.2GHz)

that's not happening, as frequency goes up, heat increases exponentially

Pics and video or it didn't happen.

This is more than likely a fake. I read about this on another site over a day ago and there is much speculation that LimitTeam modified the numbers by exploiting a flaw in CPU-Z.

~3 days ago, a Chinese overclocking team also claimed they reached 7.2GHz, but that was shown to be fake.

I think power (heat) increases linearly with frequency and exponentially with voltage. Pentium extreme 965 was 3.73 GHz stock and 570 and 670 were 3.8 GHz. They were the highest stock speeds as far as I know. The 570 and 670 were only single core but the extreme 965 was dual core.

ummm...didn't he mention the use liquid nitrogen? if not, im pretty sure that's what they used otherwise you're right
