AMD: Working on limited 5GHz FX edition?

admin Apr 4

The Hexus blog has come out saying that AMD will be introducing its next FX flagship called the “Centurion”, this will be none other than a Vishera-based component that is set to run at very high speeds, 5GHZ just with air cooling . Those looking to get it best hurry as it will not be around much longer as it is a limited edition item, and like all limted edition products on the market it will come with a hefty price tag set at $795.


So how about this as a rumour for a Friday morning? Though AMD will never go on record and confirm this, we have it on good authority that the chip-maker will soon be releasing a super-FX chip. Based on the same ‘Vishera’ architecture powering the current FX-8350, which runs at up to 4.2GHz, this new FX, codenamed ‘Centurion’, is to be made available in very limited quantities.

This so-called Centurion is guaranteed to run at 5GHz, on air, though we don’t know exactly what voltage or supporting hardware will be required for this lofty speed.
