Intel Atom 330 gets overclocked to 2.2GHz

Posted on Friday, June 19 2009 @ 18:54:48 CEST by


Thomas from Bright Side of News has set a new world record on the NVIDIA ION platform, he overclocked the Intel Atom 330 processor of the Zotac ION-ITX-A mini-ITX motherboard from 1.6GHz to 2.2GHz. You can check it out over here.
For our overclocking experiment on the Atom 330 processor, we used a dual-channel kit of 2GB DDR2-6400 rated CAS5, and were able to hit as much as 2.2 GHz using air cooling - which is a nice 600 MHz boost from the standard operating speed [1.6 GHz]. The dual core Atom processor is limited to a multiplier of 12, and from there it was simply a question of incrementally increasing the FSB value via the BIOS. The normal bus speed is 133 MHz QDR [Quad Data Rate, equals to 532 MT/s], and we were able to reach 185 MHz QDR [740 "MHz" e.g. Million Transfers/Second].
