New Delhi: US chipmaker giant AMD has announced that it has achieved the Guinness World Record for the "Highest Frequency of a Computer Processor," by engineering the upcoming 8-core AMD FX desktop processor.

"The record-breaking processor speed that resides in the AMD FX CPU clearly demonstrates performance gains for the new AMD 'Bulldozer' multi-core architecture, which will provide x86 computing power for this CPU and future AMD Accelerated Processing Units," said Chris Cloran, corporate vice president and general manager, Client Group at AMD.

The AMD FX CPU, all set to be launched in the fourth quarter of 2011, has achieved a top speed of 8.429 GHz, surpassing the previous record of 8.308 GHz.
The record was set on August 31, 2011, in Austin, Texas, by "Team AMD FX," a group comprised of overclocking specialists working alongside AMD technologists, who will also be credited for the record.
AMD processors are best for gaming and graphics applications. I recently bought a AMD phenom II X6, which is equivent to intel core i7 / i6. It comes with inbuilt graphics card, unlike intel processor a separate graphics card is additional.
