    WTH!? :twitch: 7GHZ!!! Ok maybe these really are impressive cpu's. over a 100% OC.

    7Ghz Didn't someone do that a long time ago with a Intel P4? I thought someone got a P4 to 7ghz but windows wouldn't load, could only POST.

    An amd with a faster superpi score than my intel? And it only took twice the clock speed... man we need a better benchmark, surely there's some simple calculation that will lend itself to intel and amd cpus equally.

    Seems like the PII's are the new Pentium 4 for extreme overclockers. I wouldn't be surprised if they got to 8ghz+ in the near future with newer revisions.

    Surely, they will get higher than this with time.
    It's been only 6 months since launch and these chips are still revision RB-C2. Future respin(s) and maturing of the process will be more than enough to do the job.
