AMD new APUs A8-3850 has unlocked multiplier that can be set higher than default value with no performance improvement

While browsing through the web, I came across a Chinese website that posted CPU-Z screen shot of A8-3850 at a whopping speed of 5.6GHz (100×56) on AIR.

Unfortunately, the editor has been fooled. With the new APUs, at least from our own internal test, it shows that the APU can be multiplier overclocked beyond the default of 29x but there won’t be any performance difference at all from 29x.

Try it out if you have an A8-3850 on hand and see if you do a 6 GHz on AIR :)
