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.

Intel Replaces Core i7 970, With i7 980

If you own the Intel Core i7 970 processor, you no longer have the latest and greatest in computing technology. Not that it matters much anyways, but Intel has recently unleashed the new Core i7 980 processor.

Now, before you go crazy this isn’t the extreme edition, nor is it unlocked- meaning you won’t be able to push it to the max with any overclocking software. This also means that you won’t have to spring for a heavy cooling system such a water cooled case.

4.8GHz Notebook W/ 2GB Video Card

Computer manufacturer Maingear has just launched its newest laptop, the eX-L 17 3D notebook. The machine has an overlcocked 4.8GHz CPU and Nvidia GeForce GTX 485M. 3D enthusiasts will make use of the 3D Vision support and rip through applications with the blazing fast second generation Intel processor, 2.5GHz in its resting state, and 4.8GHz when it’s overclocked to the max.

Consumers will enjoy the built-in 3D emitter, two HDD bays for expansion later down the road, and an integrated ‘Bigfoot Networks Killer Wireless-N.’
