AMD has been showing off their soon to be released 45nm "Deneb" desktop chips which have been overclocked to 6.3Ghz
The Phenom II parts were also able to hit 4GHz with air cooling and 5GHz with dry ice cooling.

AMD stated that the extra level of headroom towards dramatic overclocking capacities on the Phenom II is due to a combination of architectural improvements over the original Phenoms first released late in 2007. In comparison to Intel´s top Core i7 processor listed as a 3.2 GHz part has been overclocked to 4.5 GHz on air cooling alone and some claim to have taken it to 5.7GHz using liquid nitrogen.
The Phenom II chip is due out sometime in the first quarter of 2009 and will be listed to run at 3.0 GHz off the shelf.
