GIGABYTE today announced the record highest clock speed 7.86GHz on AMD’s A10-5800K APU using the GIGABYTE F2A85X-UP4 motherboard. Attending an AMD Extreme OC show on 20th Nov. in Taipei Taiwan, GIGABYTE’s overclocking team, The Killers (featuring HiCookie, S.Dougal and John Lam), took part in an overclocking demonstration achieving two new records on AMD’s new Vishera and Trinity platforms. The GIGABYTE F2A85X-UP4 motherboard was able to push the AMD 5800K to an incredible 7.86GHz, more than twice the 3.8GHz stock clock. The same group also overclocked an AMD FX8350 processor to 8.47GHz using a GIGABYTE 990FXA-UD3 board! The CPU-Z validation for the AMD A10-5800K APU record, can be found here.
“We are extremely excited with this OC result because the F2A85X-UP4 is the first motherboard from GIGABYTE to use our new Ultra Durable 5 technology – so the OC record is a testament to the high caliber of components that we use on our products,” said Henry Kao, Vice President of the GIGAGYTE Motherboard Business Unit. “These results solidify GIGABYTE’s position as the go-to platform for AMD overclocking enthusiasts.”
