AMD FX processor @ 8.429 GHz

A talented team broke a new frequency record with an AMD FX processor : 8.429 GHz. In order to reach that frequency, the CPU was cooled with liquid helium. Congratulations !

Wow, that's just crazy. I understand it's all smoke and mirrors with the smoke coming from liquid helium but it's a unreal volume of data !

I have the AMD3+ FX 4100 and I am so far pleased with it, even though the FX scored .1 lower in the WEI then my previous AM3 x4 945 did. I have to say the system seems actually faster, maybe WEI is not able to correctly test my new AMD 990 extreme3 MB and the new FX CPU’s or what but over all I say my rig is running faster than my old ASUS and AM3 setup.

Well to say the least ,The Bulldozer chip will be more usefull in windows 8 pretty much built in time for Win 8 that is where you will likley see the chip perform

I'm pretty sure the WEI on Win 8 will play in that chip's favor ,I myself is inline to grab a bulldozer chip the one I actually want is a myth i suppose but the codename and number are released 4170 .4.2 Ghz stadard imagine Oc'ing that bad boy

4 core chip at that no need for 6 or 8 cores I don't run to many resource sucking apps just gaming /streaming and such

I don't know when they are going to bring out the FX-4170 but here is a link to some info about the new FX cpu's and the 4170 is also listed there. The 4100 that I have is 3.6GHz (3.8GHz Turbo). I will give the system a few weeks running at stock to make sure there are no problem and then I will start the OC and see if I can get it up to 4.5GHz or higher.

Didnt they patch Win7 so the BD chips would work better already?

Was a bit curious how much it helped.

I don't think it helped to much /Some are saying they see the difference

I can't comment cause don't have the chip yet and those chips shouldn't score so low on WEI either

MS recalled that hotfix as it was suppose to be two hotfixes and the one got released by mistake. Some report that they tried just the one and had problems and it actually hurt the performance.

Well, all I can say is that my lowest score in WEI is now the CPU @ 7.2. But I have to really say that over all the system seems faster and by that I mean programs like MS office pop open ASAP, spreadsheets pop open, IE pops right up and I am using the same hardware that was in my old ASUS AM3 rig except for the MB, ram and CPU which are new, the drives, graphic card, nics, DVD, sound card etc, etc are all the same.

CPU 7.2
Memory 7.6
Graphic 7.8
Hard Disk 7.7 - note that I have a 120GB SATA III SSD as primary drive
