"A given level of instructions per second can be achieved with a high IPC and a low clock speed (like the AMD Athlon and early Intel's Core Series), or from a low IPC and high clock speed (like the Intel Pentium 4 and to a lesser extent the AMD Bulldozer). Both are valid processor designs, and the choice between the two is often dictated by history, engineering constraints, or marketing pressures." -from Wikipedia


How high of an overclock would an FX-8150 have to achieve to match or exceed a Core i7 6700K at stock 4GHz in single thread performance, 8GHz? Just curious...
