Very nice review. That is one overclocking chip.

Loved the review! Too bad that's not a chip that will be hitting standard commercial channels. That video was pretty neat at the end there.

That chip would be insulted if you put a TRUE on it :P

:withstupid:

Even dice was barely enough to show its real power...

BTW it's not a 940. And neither a 955.

haha I know it's not but from your decription it sure sounded like one (though I do know it's not....)

Plus I'd be interested to see how far it could go on air only because you were saying it was designed to run much cooler and with lower voltages so I was curious to see how an every day overclocker could use one. (Heck I'll be glad to try it, if you'd be willing to let me borrow it)

I noticed you said it's stock frequency was 2GHz, but in your CPU-Z screen shot it shows the HT at 2GHz and the CPU clock at 3.2GHz. Am I seeing it correctly?

i agree, i think it would be interesting to see how well it would do under normal air cooling.. and benching with a game or two. Instead of synthetics. just for kicks

For now, these won't be made available for retail, so I assume the few that are able to play with this chip are ones that have extreme cooling methods for overclocking. Wouldn't make much sense for air or other benchmarks.

EDIT: I need to start reading ALL of the posts instead of just part of it, didn't see the "just for kicks" part
