Gulftown hits 6.4GHz

Shamino + LN2 = whole lotta speed





Gulftown isn't due until next year, but the engineering samples are already floating around. Fortunately for the general public, the overclocking legend Shamino got his hands on one of these and decided to see what this beast is capable of.

Shamino used LN2 cooling and managed to hit impressive 6.4GHz (or to be more precise 6.386MHz). Note however that the operating voltage was set to a rather high 2.02V.

The system ran stable with the cores at 5.9GHz, and did one round in 3DMark Vantage Performance with quite an impressive result. The CPU scored 55,177, which to some might not mean much, but you should know that the Performance Profile world record is currently 32,328 points, which puts Intel’s upcoming ace incredible 22,849 points ahead, which is pretty close to double.

Unfortunately for AMD and its newly announced Thuban CPUs, this came just in time to spoil AMD’s announcement fun, not to mention the fact that AMD will have a lot of work to do if Intel’s engineering samples give any indication of the actual performance.

You can check out the results here

old news DST. lol
Cooling these beasts will be a huge issue, can't wait to try them out!
There are a few ES floating about, and they all seem to OC very well. That is some POWER!

How are they overclocking Alex? The first steppings overclocked like mad, and every newer stepping has overclocked worse, I hav enot seen any OC's on public released stepping.

Oh I know that, the reason I asked was because that would allow for the Video rendering people have 12gb without stressing the CPU too much.  At least thats what one would hope.

I'll I'm going to say is, imagine running 4.4GHz+ on air with half the temps of current i7 CPUs on load. Let alone 12 threads of power.

The MB sensor for for the CPU reports the cores in an constant update.  they usually for me were very accurate when compared with HWmonitor.
