AMD Kaveri A10 7850K At 4.7Ghz

HardCoreWare overclocked an AMD Kaveri A10 7850K to 4.7GHz and ran it through a series of benchmarks to see how it performed.

In our Kaveri review, we looked at the top-model A10 7850K, which comes clocked stock at 3.7 GHz base and 4.0 GHz turbo and is fully unlocked. This is actually lower than the prier generation Richland APU which runs at 4.0/4.3 GHz. This might lead you to believe Kaveri to be a weak overclocker, but that wasn’t really the case for us. Using a Noctua NH-U14S and a voltage of around 1.45-1.50v, we were able to get our sample to run at 4.7 GHz. This isn’t just a case of "boot up and take a screenshot of Prime95″ either. This is pretty much rock solid
