    Did you hear about Nividia and ATI merging!:D

    Ok I'm a jokin. But seriously, it is possible to get a 3 gig processor. A couple of months ago my friends dad was telling me about a new processor that he got in to their labs to test out. He works for the federal government. Anyway he said they were having trouble keeping the thing from frying itself becuase it put off so much heat.

    I don't beleive someone had a 3 gig processor MADE for himself though. It would cost as much as a high end server right now plus who in the world can use a 3 gig procesor overclocked? Kinda overkill if you ask me.

    By the way the new via kt400 boards are already being sold too! :D :D

    : peace2:
    Out of my mind. Be back in five minutes.

    The real scary thing is that Intel has (in their engineer's labs) CPU cores running at 10GHz currently!!! :eek:

    Of course, it'll be a few years before we see them in mass production, and not to mention the optical microprocessor research - boy will that be sweet if a chip maker pulls that off :)

    Sorry to spoil the fun, but it just made me realise that there's a lot of overclocking goodness yet to be released :)

    Bring on the 50GHz Pentium XII Wris****ch!!!
