Default AMD CPU Breaks 7Ghz Barrier

Processor maker AMD supported the overclocking event SF3D overclocking event in Finland and with around ten overclockers from around Europe bunkered up together with the latest Phenom II 42 TWKR processor and loads of liquid nitrogen and liquid helium for some really extreme overclocking. They managed to achieve several impressive results and one of them was 7GHz maximal clock frequency, and a world record in 3DMark06. Ironically none of these were achieved using the new overclockerfriendly TWKR processor, but instead Phenom II X4 955 BE stole the show.

To be completely frank, AMD's Phenom II 42 TWKR processors are handpicked 955 BE processors and with this in mind it is not that weird that the 955 BE samples used in Finland were selected as the best suited for overclocking out of thousands.,9578.html
