There is no dilly dallying around this one, quite literally. Want to see the fastest games machine in the world to date? Look below.
What we have here are the preview shots of a PC that makes a car kitted out on Pimp My Ride look like something you grandmother would drive to the shops.
What we are talking about is a VapoChill CPU cooled, WaterChill graphics cooled, Abit Fatal1ty (named after nine-time World Champion gamer Jonathan “Fatal1ty” Wendel) AA8 XE motherboard based, ATI Radeon X850XT PE video powered PC with Kingston HyperX PC6000 765MHz DDR2 RAM and the piece de resistance: an Intel P4 3.8GHz processor overclocked to an incredible 5GHz.
Oh yes, this machine came kicking and screaming straight from Hell. The cool thing about this custom job, of which models will be on shown at CeBIT this year (including two at ATI’s stand!), is that it is the result of a bunch of manufacturers all mucking in together. As Brigitte Hass of Kingston concisely summed up: "This project has been dedicated to the creation of a dream machine".
Possibly even more extreme than the specs of the machine itself are the cooling details explained by Morten Berg-Christensen at asetek who said the CPU alone has to be kept at a constant temperature of between minus 33 and minus 50 degrees centigrade. You heard that right: -33/-50C!
If there has ever been a PC we would like to sneakily test with MobileMark, this is it. See what happens when you all play nice, guys and gals?
