Just curious cause they didnt mention what graphic cards they were using or much else than the CPU.
Yea thats the only way AMD can beat Intel...By cooling it to 200 degrees below what the average user would have it running at and by competiting against an older generation processor. Quite weak on their behalf.

The world record attempt was to see how far they can push the CPU thus why that cooling was used. Previous AMD CPU were "cold bug" proned , so this is good news and a massive step forward for AMD. The previous record was held by Intel also using the same cooling. Give them some credit

Its still strange that in Computer world, we have only these 2 major CPU manufacturers. Someday, i will open a new Company and we'll manufacture only CPU's with great speed and cooling method thus beating both AMD and Intel. LOL.
Well, i personally think i7 is the best and the fastest processor so far.

Very original username by the way.
haha, but still one of my favorite videos. I believe I first saw it in high school.

may be we just see only two major players commercially but there are many manufactures got their own high end processors for eg dell!!!

Pretty much there are some minor players in the world, like Via and Transmeta, as well as processors never seen by 'average users' at all unless they are using something other than their desktop / laptop - TI, IBM, etc.

Here is a list: CPU Manufacturer Index - by IndexOfTheWeb.com

However, the fact that they can take the new AMD CPU to -240 (getting much much closer to Absolute zero - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ) means a lot for AMD fans worldwide - and don't get me wrong, I have been an Intel user for a very long time.

I am glad to see some realists in here that still notice that somehow, someway, Intel produced a *monster* of a CPU in the Core i7 series - but it is nice to know that AMD is fighting back - I hope this means massive price drops on the Core i7s to keep competitive, but I already have my Core i7 965 EE, so.....

It's as impressive as much as it is highly impractical

Considering how well it performed at extreme temperatures, it should have no problem at room temperature, possibly surpassing the Q9550.

Cooling a processor to the negative degrees Celsius is a double-edged; the rapid cooling may shrink the metal parts of the CPU. Most of those "stunt" CPUs only last for a few hours, then die.
