Build a business case: developing custom apps

Compaq is showing a 1GHz Presario which uses Kryotech's Super G technology in combination with an AMD Athlon. Kryotech introduced the supercooled system at the end of last year, but the fact that Compaq is showing a product based on it is a plus for both it and for chip company AMD. The system is being demoed at a consumer show currently being held in Las Vegas. Compaq's director of consumer desktop marketing, Mark Vena, said that the adoption of the Super G technology meant that his company was the first major computer manufacturer to publicly demonstrate a 1GHz system. And Compaq's Web site is already showing off the 800MHz Athlon chip which will become available over the next few days, at this location on its Web site. And AMD has now formally issued its PR release about the 800MHz part, see here. ® See also 800MHz Athlon hits Intel in the face
