A Korean overclocker, Namegt, has reached 4.8GHz on AMD's new A12-9800 APU using AMD's Wraith Air cooler at a voltage of 1.325V. This is a huge improvement on the overclockability of AMD's older Kaveri APUs, which require much larger cooling solutions and higher voltage in order to achieve the same clock speeds.  

This overclock is 1GHz higher than A12-9800's base clock speed of 3.8GHz and 0.6GHz higher than this CPUs boost clock speeds of 4.2GHz, which is an impressive overclock given the fact that this CPU is still using AMD's reference CPU cooler design.  

At this time no performance data for this overclock has been made available, so we cannot confirm the stability of this overclocks. Even so, this overclock is very impressive given AMD's low power design for these APUs and the relatively early/low-end motherboard that this system is using.

The motherboard used for this overclock is an ASUS AM4 motherboard known only as "Octopus", though it is worth noting that this motherboard uses a CPU cooler mounting solution that looks very similar to AMD's older AM3+ mount.

This early overclocking result makes us very excited to see what AMD's AM4 based Bristol Ridge platform is capable off, as right now these CPUs are only available to OEMs like HP. It is expected that these CPUs will hit retail shelves later this year.

Hah! This made me laugh.

Imagine if Zen followed suit as this. 4.8Ghz on a Wraith cooler could be epic.Quote
