    ..so at 8.4Ghz, it will just about match a 2600k IPC @4.5Ghz then.......

    In the photo of that video... Is he protecting LN2 spills with his bare hand?

    Everything here. AMD being more broadly able to compete with Intel is good for everyone.

    I wonder what kind of overclocks can be done on air.

    James have you guys had any review samples sent yet? If this overclocking potential allows everyday overclocks of 5Ghz on 8 cores AMD might be an interesting choice again. Of course this depends on how good the IPC is.

    Getting a bit of LN2 on bare skin is fine, it boils so you're insulated by a layer of gas... it's much worse to have gloves frozen onto your skin.

    Ha just looked at the cpu-z screenshot and it shows the chips TDP at only 56w? And a core voltage of 2.016v!

    No, we haven't got our review samples yet, although we have seen and played with Bulldozer; which leads onto your next question...

    Although the voltage and frequency are correct, I wouldn't believe anything else in the CPU-Z screenshot. I'm not saying AMD is lying, but the chip in question was a pre-production sample, so not all the specs are correct.

    That's what I'm talking about, really hope AMD come up trumps here performance wise

    Yeah i figured the TDP was reporting wrongly. That would be awesome for an 8 core cpu.

    I need to replace my CPU and Motherboard ASAP so I hope this Bulldozer CPU is as good as Intel's CPU's or close to as good. I want to return to AMD again.

    Funny how the AMD fanbois didn't read/missed/ignored this part:-

    "To put this into context, the previous world record, set by the Latvian overclocker Tapakah, stood at 8.309GHz, achieved on a single-core Intel Celeron D 352"

    Don't be dry leg humping yet gents!

    Got to say well done AMD.

    While these may overclock like this under nitrogen and helium what will they go to on air or under water is the more important, thing that we need to know as we already know that the 2600k/2500k will do 5ghz+ on air and potentially 5.5ghz+ under water, unyet I have not seen anything like this as I don't think anyone has been crazy enough to put 2v's through one of them yet?

    I hope AMD come back to the market for the enthusiast's because then it mean's or should mean Intel will have to drop the price of there cpu's meaning saving's for people.

    I must admit I have not looked at AMD for a cpu since the Q6600 came out as nothing as far as I am concerned has been able to compete against, Intel since even the 6 core cpu's cannot compete sometimes and I stress sometimes with a dual core from Intel.

    I am now though looking forward to seeing what these new chips are capable of performance wise, but if they are a let down the Sandy Bridge E is where my money goes and my dad get's my current 2500K.
