Hi, Ive an AMD A8-4500m processor and lately Ive being learning everything I can about this CPU. I read that this CPU is overclockable till 2800GHZ (with multiplier), still, it only goes up to 2300GHz, Ive an ASUS K55N (locked CPU)
Does somebody knows how can I get the GHz to 2.8GHz? Thanks a lot.
Here is all the Specs on your AMD APU: http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Bulldozer/AMD-A8-Series%20A8-4500M.html
See if in your Laptop BIOS there is any thing related to "Boosted P States".
If your APU is locked it means it is not meant to be overclocked as per this definition:
But you can still Overclock a locked CPU indirectly using BIOS using the Motherboard's Reference Clock instead of the CPU.
Generally you shouldn't Overclock any hardware in a laptop since it could exceed its engineered Power & Temperature operating limits and possible damage the laptop.
