AMD’s A8 Processor Pushed To 4.9GHz

AMD’s A8 Llano APU (accelerated processing unit) has just been taken to new heights in the overclocking world. A Japanese team of computer enthusiasts tried their hand at overclocking with an AMD A8-3850 processor (defaults at 2.9GHz), a Gigabyte GA-A75-UD4H motherboard, and a cooler that runs on liquid nitrogen.

Of course, hardly any enthusiasts use liquid nitrogen to cool their computer hardware, and we definitely don’t think your processor will last very long running at 5GHz, but it’s always cool to be able to say that you did it.

Acer Rolls Out 24″ Internet LCD Monitor

Acer has come forth with a new product called the DX241H web surf station. What does it do? It’s a 24-inch LCD monitor that comes with internet access. The suggested retail is 300 pounds, just about $500 USD. The price suggests that we are dealing with a netbook tech spec ordeal, enclosed within a 24-inch monitor. The machine runs on the Freescale i.MX51 system, an ARM Cortex A8 architecture and runs at 800MHz. No clue yet as to how much memory it has, but I think 1GB is a safe guess.
