AMD Phenom II breaking 7GHz Page: 1
 
AMD Dragon pushed past 7GHz
 
If, like us, you love to follow the latest news from the sub-zero world of extreme overclocking, it wont have escaped your notice that the AMD Dragon platform, utilising a Phenom II, broke through the 7GHz barrier.
 
The skill and dedication needed to crack this have been recorded for posterity, and AMD have released some videos detailing the creep toward the magical mark, and the final breaking of it. Without showing my age I can remember a time when the 1GHz mark seemed the stuff of fantasy. Moore's Law continues to not only hold true, but almost seem conservative.
 
Here is one of their teaser videos. Truly amazing.
