The other day we learned the possibilities of the accelerated A8-3850 processor in terms of extreme acceleration of computing nuclei. There is little comforting, following the increase in the frequency of the basic generator, the frequency of other components of the PC is growing, which cause a failure in its work. The maximum value of the multiplier in the flagship chip of the Lynx platform is 29x, which means that in order to reach a frequency of 5 GHz, it is necessary to increase the support frequency to 173 MHz. At the moment, enthusiasts managed to conquer only 169.2 MHz. The A8-3870 model can facilitate acceleration to overclockers and ordinary users.
The Turkish resource of Donanimhaber discovered the plans of the children from Sanniveyl mentioning the withdrawal of this accelerated processor in the fourth quarter of this year. The evolutionary increase in frequency by 200 MHz compared to the A8-3850 somehow faded against the background of the presence of free to increase the multiplier. Now it will be enough to increase the voltage in the BIOS supplied to the A8-3870, and gradually increase the factor until the most stable frequency is detected. SATA and USB controllers will no longer restrain acceleration.
It remains to find out how much AMD will appreciate the A8-3870 belonging to the Black Edition family.
