We all want to get the maximum juice out of our CPUs but the guys at AMD have taken it to a whole new level. They've set a Guinness World Record for the "Highest Frequency of a Computer Processor," by overclocking the upcoming 8-core AMD FX desktop processor.
The AMD FX CPU, set to launch in the fourth quarter of 2011, achieved a top speed of 8.429 GHz, surpassing the previous record of 8.308 GHz. The record was set on Aug 31, 2011, in Texas, by "Team AMD FX," a group comprised of elite overclocking specialists working alongside top AMD technologists, who will also be named in the Guinness World Records.
Take a look at the video below to see AMD overclock the CPU.
