Over clocking maybe (can you give a link perhaps?)... But AMDs come under clocked from the start, so just getting the FX-60 up to a normal speed would probably put the overall performance over 7GHz. Over volting and over clocking the FX-60 to it's max (understandably), then I'm sure that the AMD would perhaps over-shoot a theortical 10GHz processor!
By the way, I'd just like to note that for that amazing 7GHz, that was the absolute highest
a P4 could over clock to. The AMD FX-60 performs as a 6.0GHz, making it slightly less powerful while stock (severly under) clocked.
Intel has nothing on AMD
