AMD is preparing superprotsessor with a base frequency of 5 GHz

Portal, citing an unnamed source reported that Advanced Micro Devices is preparing a new processor with a clock frequency of 5 GHz. And it is not no factory overclocking, and that neither is the base frequency of the crystal out of the box.

While NVIDIA strongly dominates the high-end market of graphics cards, AMD has decided that it is time to finally do something worthwhile on the processor front. And to do so worthwhile, that “something” might even be able to compete on an equal or even exceed the most popular chips Intel.

When else is it that only one processor from AMD would cost as much as 795 (to be precise, the figures appear from 609 euros to 795 euros), and that is how much this will cost crystal. In fairness, we note that the official announcement by AMD has not happened. Nevertheless portal, who reported the news, I am sure that this announcement will take place soon.

According to the source, the new chip will be called FX Centurion Super Processor, based on the architecture «Piledriver» and will become part of the line CPUs «Vishera». And since it is currently the flagship processor is AMD FX-8350, which at the height of the load automatically accelerates to 4.2 GHz, the appearance of the processor with a frequency of 5 GHz band can really look logical. We have to admit, and would be glad if such a processor overclocked to 5 GHz mode Turbo Core, and 5 GHz in the database – it is generally something out of science fiction.

Unfortunately, the source does not indicate whether the FX Centurion have the same 8 cores, which are available at the company’s flagship FX-8350, or the number of cores will be less.

Taking also into account its price, it can be assumed that this processor will be offered only in limited batches. The source reports that the processor can handle and conventional air cooling.
