We could feel the salivation at Alienware's announcement of a new gaming laptop that's factory-overclocked to 4GHz. Now ORIGIN has announced that its EON17-S performance notebooks are available with mobile processors overclocked to a world-beating 4.5GHz.
ORIGIN says that updates to the B3 stepping motherboards and Turbo Boost technology have allowed its engineers to increase the speed and power of a second generation Intel Core processor to 4.5GHz, without shortening expected system lifespan or adversely impacting on stability. This achievement was undertaken using a second generation Intel Core i7-2920XM Extreme Edition processor, but the EON17-S performance laptop is available with a number of other second generation Intel Core i5 or i7 Processor configurations on the Huron River platform with the HM67 chipset.
Seeing this was like a kick in the pants, I really need to upgrade already.
