Overclockers Vie for World Record with AMD's "Vishera" FX-8350 CPU

Maximum PC: The overclocking community is wasting no time putting AMD's new 8-core "Vishera" FX-8530 processor to work chasing world records for CPU frequency. To wit, MSI yesterday sent out a press release bragging that it's 990FXA-GD80 motherboard was used by an overclocker to set a world record of 8.37GHz, and it's already been leapfrogged...twice! The new record, at least for today, stands at 8.67GHz, giving Asus a bit of momentary bragging rights. (AMD, AMD FX-8350, PC, PC hardware)

8.67GHz? That's nuts!

8.67Ghz makes me feel really primitive.
