Leaked air-cooled AMD FX-8130P ‘Bulldozer’ hits 5.14GHz

Leaked air-cooled AMD FX-8130P ‘Bulldozer’ hits 5.14GHz

Enterprising internet leakists have oozed some information about AMD’s newest processor – but not enough for a solid performance confirmation.

We at Atomic expect big things of the Bulldozer platform; prime among these things is an ability to overclock well on aftermarket air (the solution that's most practical for the vast majority of readers).

It naturally follows that we're quite excited at the prospect of AMD's latest processor architecture, Bulldozer, being overclocked to a whopping 5140MHz – 5.14GHz – on what appears to be a relatively standard Noctua NH-D14 heatsink.

CPUz is also run, which shows off the AMD chip's model name of FX-8130P, an overclocked TDP of 186W (stock of 125W is likely), and the motherboard used: the ASUS Crosshair V Formula. Most AM3+ boards can run this chip just fine, though not all will be able to overclock this far.

The overclock is supposedly achieved with a multiplier of 22x and a HT bus speed of 233MHz, requiring a huge 1.594V to be pumped through the chip for stability. It appears to be enough to boot into windows; though benchmarks are run at lower speeds.

The proof is in the pudding, and the pudding's the video below – though it does not show any performance data, nor the AMD FX-8130P processor itself.

If true, this is an exciting tease at what we can expect from Bulldozer when it launches. There is no current official launch date.
