Carrera intros 1GHz Athlon box

It's refrigerated, err...thermally accelerated

The £5,873.83 box is called the Octan FrioSuper G and is aimed both at the workstation and the high end gaming market. The system uses an Athlon "thermally accelerated" to 1GHz, and includes 256Mb of SDRAM, has an 18Gb hard drive, with 3D Labs' GVX1 32Mb AGP video, a 22-inch Iiyama monitor, a Panasonic SCSI DVD-RAM drive, Aureal Vortex sound, NT 4, keyboard and so forth. AMD is expected to intro a 750MHz Athlon at Comdex. ®
