Team AU Sets Atom OC Record

Last month we reported that MSI had released a BIOS update that allowed a quick and dirty overclock with the use of a key combo.  Well, Youngpro of Team AU decided to take things to another level.  With the help of a bit of LN2 to drop CPU temperatures to just about subzero, he clocked the Atom N270 in his MSI Wind U100 to 2.385GHz, just under a 50% overclock.  And that's not all.  The next step in his plan is to give the thing a good ol' volt mod and to run some benchmarks, namely SuperPi and 3DMark03.

4Ghz+ on air/water? No problem.

5Ghz+ on Phase/Dry Ice? Piece of cake.

6Ghz+ on LN2? Time to party.

AMD shook nVidia with the 4800's, anyone see a repeat with Intel here?:p

Hmm time for some reading :)

Although AMD would have to get out some serious performance to beat the current i7's. The 920s can be clocked to 3.5 gHz almost without a problem sometimes even below their stock 1.18V. And the i7 has a scarily high memory bandwidth.

IF this 4 gHz on air cooling isn't too difficult though, AMD could be in for some serious intel bashing if their pricing is all right. One of their main advantages is the reuse of old motherboards, which lowers the upgrade price dramatically.

One of the main thing AMD have going for them now is the fact that they're far more profitable thanks to the spin off.
Another thing I've been reading as of late is that The Foundry are already playing with 32nm chips...

If this is gonna be another athlon XP vs P4 situation, I'm so in! AMD are gonna have to get some serious bang for buck going again to win back the hearts and cash of enthusiasts though, with intel completely dominating the scene for the last year or so...

I have high hopes for AMD, as they're known for offering the more affordable solution. I hope we can see the return of something alike the Athlon X2 range (price/performance wise), but quicker. :cool:

I support anyone who makes cheap fast kit.
Heres hoping for a return to form
