if they could do that at realistic power levels that would be acceptable...
not saying they don't im just sayign i don't want the p4 days back...

Says the 65 nm totin' AMD user :lol:

OPs link is probably fine but the site is having some mysgl problems. :(

edit: the site is working again, and looks like they OCed the living **** out of the poor cpu: 5,6GHz lol

But, they also said they were going to test with Liquid Nitrogen for cooling. What is the point of sites that do that? Anything that is not practical in the real world is pointless in my book.

I might was well say, "I wrote a fictional story on my computer yesterday and I was able to get 14Teraflopps out of my 286 PC when I O'd it in the story.." It would be just as pointless.

But it showed that 4Ghz on air is possible with Yorkfield. You don't need fancy heatsinks. You don't need exotic water coolings. Just an aftermarket air cooling, like Turniq Tower, and you can OC that chip to 4Ghz.

How is that not practical in the real world?

I heard from my bud at Intel that they have used the Skull Trail system you saw at IDF to hit 4.5GHz on liquid cooling using Harpertown processors. I don't know if that is true, he does like to brag so please take with a grain of salt.

Yes, the 4ghz was interesting.

I want to know what I could reasonably do with a system for real world use.

Just Keep your Nitrogen Cooling for instantly freezing your Snickers.

Intel have been right on the money since the C2Ds introduction. Id find it hard to believe if this werent true.

AMD should invest in a time machine.
Go say... 10 years into the future. Then they can come back and beat Intel.

Until then its an uphill struggle

GO AMD FANBOIS!!!
WOOT!
:p

uhhh the QX6850 will hit 4ghz on air also... and my Q6600 is at 3.6ghz on air with an idle of 35c.
5.6 ghz on the other hand, thats impressive :D

this is no surprise EE965 ran 4.5ghz the p4's ran 4.25ghz

the new doped gates and this is expected

we should see 4-4.5ghz systems next year

The short pipeline of the Core 2 Arch makes these figures much more impressive than any Netburst derivative.
