    Pretty awsome clock. Judging by the voltage they ran (only 1.9v) there's more in the CPU too. Maybe we'll see them break well into the 8.xx range in the near future - CPU's not coldbugged either which is helping them out loads. Great results :D

    :jawdrop: but I wonder what the total power usage is now - that's got to be expensive to run (not that that's the point).

    would be cool to see benchies against a core 2 duo, to see if the raw ghz make up for the architecture

    screw LN2....

    we demand Liquid Helium!!!


    i saw the full article over @ XS a couple of days ago and its a sight to behold.

    also notice that they are using a 631 or something, not a huge 670 or the like..

    yep, that makes it all the more impressive - you don't need such a high bus overclock with a 670 :)

    but also, those 670's were all 90nm right ??

    so even though they have to go a further 800Mhz, it should have a lower TDP at 8Ghz when compaired with a 670 at that..

    not that TDP really matters when you've got a 631 at 8Ghz....
