ORIGIN PC Overclocks New Core i7 to 5.0 GHz

Wednesday ORIGIN PC said that its ORIGIN Genesis and ORIGIN Big O high-performance PCs now offer Intel's 2nd-generation 32nm Core i7 processor featuring Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 and Integrated Memory Controller.

According to the company's CES 2011 press release, both models can be configured to sport an overclocked Core i7 processor reaching well over 5.0 GHz, however ASUS indicated that this feat was accomplished thanks to the P8P67 motherboard's onboard DIGI+ VRM and EFI BIOS for accurate performance tuning. Both models can also be configured with up to three-way SLI, customized liquid cooling options and more.

"Intel’s latest technology delivers gamers and creative professionals a new level of processing power and intuitive convenience," said Kevin Wasielewski, CEO and Co-Founder of ORIGIN. "ORIGIN delivers the most aggressive and rock solid overclocking in the industry and we have Intel's Core i7 processors running at over 5 GHz while remaining cool and passing every single one of our stability tests. The Intel Core i7 2600K processor is an amazing processor and with ORIGIN's award-winning overclocking our customers will dominate the playing field."

Wednesday ORIGIN said that the EON15-S and EON17-S performance notebooks will also ship with overclocked 2nd-generation Core i5 and i7 processors in Q1 2011, however consumers can purchase the original EON17 now with Nvidia's latest mobile GPU. Currently this meaty laptop can be configured with a plethora of gaming goodness, offering up to Intel's Core i7 980X CPU, up to two Nvidia GeForce GTX 485M cards in dual SLI mode, up to a whopping 24 GB of dual-channel DDR3 memory and up to three hard drives.

ORIGIN said that the revamped Genesis and Big O performance desktops will be available starting January 9, 2011. The updated EON notebooks with overclocked Core i5 and i7 processors will be ready for consumption in Q1 2011. For those attending CES 2011 this week, the Genesis desktops will be on display at the Fractal Design Suite in the Venetian while the Big O desktops will be on display at the Creative Labs booth in South Hall 1, 20913.

    Anyway.. if computers are soon to be sold at a factory 5.0GHz that's pretty insane. I wonder what 2012 will bring us in terms of speeds?
