CeBIT saw the world’s fastest PC being demonstrated to attendees, with clock speeds of up to 5.46GHz.
The Dream Machine PC was the result of a collaboration between Asetek, Kingston Technology and Western Digital, the fourth time the partners had built such a platform for CeBIT.
Last year, the three companies demonstrated a PC that could run to 5GHz, so the jump in a year hasn’t been that great.
The 2006 model was built around a souped-up Intel 3.8GHz CPU, with an advanced cooling system to allow the system to take the heat generated by such high processing speeds.
The Dream Machine includes Asetek’s Vapochill LightSpeed CPU cooling, and WaterChill graphics card and motherboard chipset cooling.
It also includes Kingston’s HyperX Ram system, and Western Digital’s Raptor X 150 GB hard drive.
