V3 Gaming PC, manufacturer of high-end computer systems, has announced the integration of Intel’s 2nd Generation Core Processor Family to their product line with the Convoy and Convoy 3DS Desktop Gaming Computers. Intel’s latest processors, previously code-named “Sandy Bridge”, offer several features that provide tangible performance benefits of their predecessors.

Among the benefits of the new processors is a more aggressive Turbo Boost 2.0, which will automatically overclock some of the processor’s cores when the others are not in use. For those who desire a more traditional overclock, the Intel has launched K-series parts that can be overclocked through an unlocked multiplier to very impressive speeds. “We have managed overclocks exceeding 5.0GHz in our testing of the Intel Core i7-2600K processor,” remarked Chuck Morris, System Engineer at V3 Gaming PC, “we’ve got some pretty incredible performance out of it too.”

Those who select either of the K series processors are encouraged to also chose V3 Gaming PC’s famous Launch Control overclocking service to take the performance of their system to the next level.
Hope their PCs don't get socket burn from their customers running at 5GHz 24/7. :nutkick:
