World's fastest processor - AMD processor sets Guinness World Record

NEW DELHI: Global computer chip maker AMD said it has achieved the Guinness World Record for the 'Highest Frequency of a Computer Processor'.

Frequency of a chipset is used to describe the number of calculations done by the processor in a second, and is used to assess the performance of the chipset.

The AMD FX CPU, set for launch in the fourth quarter of 2011, achieved a top speed of 8.429 GHz, surpassing the previous record of 8.308 GHz.

Freddie Hoff, adjudicator for Guinness World Records said, "We applaud AMD for their entry into Guinness World Records for achieving the Highest Frequency of a Computer Processor."

The processor will enable unrivalled PC experience - extreme multi-display gaming, mega-tasking and HD content creation, AMD Corporate Vice President and GM (Client Group) Chris Cloran said in a statement.

"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," Cloran added.
