SYSTEMS: Asetek with 2.6 GHz Pentium 4

Intel had its top Pentium 4 with 1.5 GHz in its program when Vapochill was already showing a Pentium 4 system at CeBit this year, which was clocked at 2 GHz. Asetek uses an elaborate liquid cooling according to the evaporator principle.

With this cooling method it is possible to keep the CPU on during operation To cool a temperature of -10 ° Celsius, whereby the processors can be clocked considerably higher than actually intended. The system shown is based on an Asus mainboard with an i845 chipset and PC133 SD-RAM, but for the start of sales next month, mainboards with an i850 chipset and Rambus RAM will also be used. The prices vary between DM 4,000 and DM 5,000, depending on the system, the German distributor 2P has not yet been able to provide any specific information. Asetek is already showing the performance of the Socket478, for which Intel will not bring the 2.2 GHz Pentium 4 with Northwood core onto the market until spring 2002. The whole thing can be seen in Hall B3, Stand 307.
