It would seem that over the eight years of the existence of AMD processors of the FX-8100 line (32nm / Zambezi), their potential has been studied up and down and it will be extremely difficult, or even impossible, to surprise with new records in 2020.
However, apparently, we are lucky that the British overclocker hiding under the nickname Matt26LFC is not one of those who are looking for easy ways. Somehow the enthusiast got his hands on an amazingly successful copy of the AMD FX-8120 chip and set as many as four records in the ranks of the processor of the same name!
When tested in benchmarks, the FX-8120 frequency varied from 6718MHz to 6736MHz, while the CPU itself was cooled with liquid nitrogen and was installed in an almost ultimate board for the AM3+ ASUS ROG Crosshair V Formula connector.
Benchmarks and results:
|Cinebench – R11.5||11.02 points||6718MHz|
|Cinebench – R15||1020 points||6718MHz|
|GPUPI for CPU – 1B||6min 8sec 484ms||6736MHz|
|GPUPI for CPU – 100M||23sec 705ms||6720MHz|
The test setup itself looked like this:
