Hicookie hits 8GHz on LN2 with AMD Bulldozer

I'm sure many will follow. 8GHz on Bulldozer seems to be 'easy' ... :)

Hicookie jumped on facebook today and showed off an 8GHz Bulldozer LN2 OC with GIGABYTE 990FXA-UD7. Here is what he said:

8GHz on 990FXA-UD7, not hard to reach without cherry pick CPU, LN2 Cooled -192°C: http://valid.canardpc.com/show​_oc.php?id=2040266

It's a nice score, but with only 2 cores enabled the performance is very bad :( I want to know how high you can get it with all cores enabled.(benchable)

Christian Ney says:

Close to 8 GHz with 8c/8t

Close to 8 GHz with 8c/8t

TaPaKaH says:

with AMD you can't know if it's all eight cores running at 8GHz or just one

Christian Ney says:

ho yeah true, you can change multiplier from a core to another

Netherlands rsnubje says:

Well yea, I've seen NAMEGT's post, but what I meant, can you run any benchmark with it except from putting it on a screenshot in cpu-z. In my testing with BD on water I could hit for example 5.2ghz in cpu-z but only bench it on 4.9ghz

Like with every cpu exept sandy bridge, cpuz freq is most of the time way far from the bench freq

Netherlands rsnubje says:

True :) Think it's been too long since I saw that xD. But still curious how it performs in for example 3dmark 06 on these speeds.

Brazil Rbuass says:

I don't know why this guys did not bench 3D and SPi yet...
Need to know about 3D Perforrmance and IPC...
I think Celeron just show 8 GHZ to CPUZ...and many more important than a very high clock...is a very high performance...
Waiting since jan...feb...mar... xxx to the Bulldozer and I hope that MAD have been a good work to new series.

Sorry the broken english

Romania matose says:

Just CPUz is worth benching on Bulldozer, performance in the rest of the benchmarks is crap :(

Russian Federation Dancefloor says:

it's not cpu, it's shit.

1m @~6500 =13s...maybe a second better with high ram (BD does and like 1200+ easy)
3DM 11 - cpu score = epic fail
3DM 06 - cpu score = absolut epic fail

2 ln2 scores by stummerwinter during LDK-Session some days ago...

TaPaKaH says:

~8.0 validation and only ~6.5 1M ?

Canada Vinster says:

It's a nice start, and for the price point that it's targetted I like this so far.

Bulgaria I.nfraR.ed says:

I was hoping for some good 3DMark01 action, but it will fail big time with that low IPC. Back to hunting good SB :/

Germany stummerwinter says:

We couldn't reach 6,6 GHz even with full container and high voltage: 3D11 PhysX is really fail:

United States hokiealumnus says:

I got to 7.6 GHz for CPUz only in our review. SP1M would complete at 7.5. Multi-threaded was a completely different story. 6.2 for WP1024 and 6.5 for WP32. No love from modules 3 & 4 on this chip. Full pot the whole time.
