AMD breaks the 7GHz barrier with hyper-cooled helium

7ghz

We have heard about various overclocking speeds, but this is pure insane! At a recent fun overclocking event hosting by AMD, the company showed some crazy overclocking tips & tricks. The folks out there managed to break the 7Ghz speed barrier by overclocking a Phenom II processor. Since, heat is “the” biggest enemy for any processor, AMD made this possible by hyper-cooling the device by using liquid helium.

Damn! AMD just made Intel look like a sloth! Enough talk…time for a video.
