That's the short story of the basic overclocking experience for these new, entry-level AMD APUs. Those interested in the full performance experience for these AM1 products on Linux should read yesterday's overview and the numerous Phoronix articles last week exclusively covering these new products under Linux. In this article are a few benchmarks of the four AMD Semprons and Athlons at their stock frequencies plus the aforementioned overclock frequencies (The system information table only reported a 1.50GHz frequency within Ubuntu Linux based upon /proc/cpuinfo).
