AMD A8 Llano APU’s first came into the spotlight as the “Gamer Ultra” on its first launch. But now, it has taken into another level of acceleration as the overclocking gamer ultra.
You might be wondering what I am talking about, but some Japanese computer booster tried to push the default 2.9GHz of AMD A8 Llano to 5GHz using a gigabyte GA-A75-UD4H motherboard and a liquid nitrogen.
Speaking of liquid nitrogen, the proponents used it to cool the computer hardware. However, as you can see from the pictures it was like an open reservoir kept on top of the case to give a flowing coolant for the hardware.
This experiment on liquid nitrogen may probably freeze your hardware and end up useless.
On the other hand, the AMD A8 Llano APUs originally have features that include Radeon HD 6550D GPU, 65-100 W functionality, 2.4-2.9GHz based CPU clock, 4MB cache, 4 DDR3 DIMMS, and 480 GFLOPS peak computer power.
Its price is around $135. Furthermore, the performance of this computer hardware is completely fine, but it is admitted that the only way to get it faster is to do the overclocking.
That’s why our Japanese hardcore fellows are doing all they can for the ultimate overclocking. Add to that is their experiment with a based on air cooling system.
Apparently, they are still on the work of this experiment and we can’t tell if they will be successful or not. But its quiet nice to hear computer hardware to have a full 5GHz, isn’t it?
