AMD shows Phenom II running over 6.0 GHz!
Posted by newsbot on November 21st 2008



The first leaks were that the Phenom II could hit 4 GHz on aircooling alone, though we obviously wonder how extreme that air cooling is.Well today AMD had some actual demonstrations at their gathering, and thePhenom II was able to hit 5 GHz at 1.6v by using dry ice cooling. Dry iceis CO2, and it goes directly from solid to gas (sublimation) at atemperature of -109.3 F (-78.5C for the rest of the world) at 1 atmosphere.So with some pretty extreme cooling (non-LN) the Phenom II does show that ithas some legs in the clock speed department.
