Video: Are Intel Core CPUs Better than this Robot?

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 38 comments

...but can you overclock it?

Ah yes, the Super Bowl. Even if you're not a fan of the sport, the television commercials are (sometimes) reason enough to tune into the biggest U.S. sporting event of the year.

Intel forked out at least $2.5 million to air a commercial to draw attention to the company's mainstreaming of its Nehalem technology – now ready for the mass market at 32nm.

Which would you prefer to take home – the latest Core i7 or that robot?

    Considering the robot was a hallucination induced by the corporate kool-aid they were all drinking, I'd have to go with the i7... but then again, that kool-aid might be pretty cool.

    I don't know anything about the robot but the new "i" processors are awesome. The thing I like about them is that their turbo mode brings power to the masses that was previously only available to overclocking hobbyists. Of course you can still get a little more by overclocking but for most people there is no longer a reason to do it. I've built 2 machines for my company with the i5 and they run faster than my overclocked Q9400 and overclocked E8500.

    It's weird that they have video of the moment Skynet was born. Forget women, scorned robots are hell on Earth.

    Why not just run in "turbo" mode all the time?
