Fudzilla: Phenom II runs Crysis at 6.2GHz

Fuad Abazovic writes: "Almost always stable."

"We've seen Phenom II, Deneb overclocked all the way to 6.2GHz. This was not a screenshot boot, we've seen it with our own eyes as chaps from AMD managed to run the Crysis benchmark several times. The machine was stable on almost every run."

Why is it impracticle? Also the headline says it runs Crysis at 6.2GHZ but they dont show any proof of it running the game at 6.2GHZ nor do they publish the results. I dont believe this.But if AMD does manage to get one better than Intel I will return back to AMD. Until then I will keep my Intel CPU.

unless you are running a laboratory or you are a real hardcore PC gamer there's no reason to use those cooling methods to get those speeds.

SnprSlick5699d ago

I like how it never mentions the fact that they used liquid nitrogen to cool the flipping thing.

shazam5698d ago

so theyre running crysis at 6.2 billion frames per second? the poster needs to go back to school. that headline makes so little sense it just pi$ses me off.

You just owned yourself. Maybe YOU should go back to school... Hertz (symbol: Hz) is a measure of frequency, informally defined as the number of cycles occurring per second. Doesn't have to be JUST frames.


You are probably right (English isn't my first language) but to me it sounded right, but I see your point. I got the impression that shazam thinks Hz always means fps. "regular 60Hz" don't forget it's not 60Hz everywhere in the world ;)

This tittle doesn't make any god damn sense. So they OC the damn chip and run Crysis at 6.2 GHz...AND??? AND what?? Where's the benchmark??

Rapture3335698d ago (Edited 5698d ago )

I work at a computer store and my boss has a Core 2 Duo clocked to 7.2GHz, no lie.

Oh btw it's running on liquid cooling with 3 radiators from a build in case. The case is the Thermaltake Gandolf.

Man, Liquid Nitrogen. That's pretty hard-core.

Silvia0075698d ago

Now you can flash freeze all sorts of cool stuff while you use your pc.

TheIneffableBob5698d ago

And you'll make those cool things even cooler!

kyleg5698d ago

the bus speed says 200.4 mhz that sucks. AMD sucks

steve30x5698d ago

I would love to have public bus services that go 200.4mph lol

When are the Phenom IIs releasing?

Depending on how they're priced compared to the current X4's, I'll consider them. Otherwise I'll just stick with the 9950.

23478ueyur_9382235660d ago

Phenom II 920 is fairly priced and now available. Getting it most likely

No one cares. The whole can it run Crysis is old, dead and stupid. It's also irrelevant, considering only less than one percent of pc owners, own a high-end PC. Second, I believe Crysis wasn't even optimized properly.

TheColbertinator461d ago

Crysis blew my mind back then and still kinda does.

bunt-custardly461d ago

Let's hope the modders can get the other Crysis games working in VR as they use the same Cryengine.

Bioshock still looks fantastic, one of my all time favorites.

Beyond: Two Souls on PS3 can compete with modern day graphics.

SonyStyled533d ago (Edited 533d ago )

Same as Killzone 2 and 3, uncharted 2 and 3, Infamous 2, Heavy Rain, Resistance 3

jasonismoney533d ago

I wish this was entirely true, but you might want to load up Killzone 2 and Resistance 3 again.

SonyStyled533d ago

@jason I watched some gameplay videos of KZ2 and R3 on my full screen. They are on par or succeed graphically to the first person shooters mentioned in the article that also launched on the seventh generation of consoles. Try the same and see what you think

cthulhucultist532d ago

Killzone 3 was super impressive! I could not believe the graphics back then as I was regularly pausing the game to stand in awe looking at the surroundings! Resistance however did not impress me that much. Heavy rain is also another amazing graphically speaking game. It almost felt next gen

Fist4achin533d ago

I always thought the first 3 Gears of War games looked great and still hold up for today.
