AMD Athlon 64 X2 42 

First seen on June, 2012
  • 1.6 GHz
  • Dual core
1.5 Out of 10

Basically, the processor was able to run another 0.1V more CPU Core Voltage which was good enough to reach an extra 100MHz.

During our interview with AMD they said a 100MHz overclock was expected on air and that is exactly what we saw.
