CeBIT 2007: ASUS, Part 1: Sauternes In Deep Freeze
At CeBIT 2007 ASUS showcases a lot of interesting products. Let's see them in order.
Not only our reporters, but also colleagues from VR-Zone and PC Watch (as well as visitors) were attracted by the gaming platform codenamed Sauternes based on Intel P965 and cooled by "classic" copper tank with liquid nitrogen.
As you can see, coupled with R.O.G. (Republic of Gamers) motherboard was Intel's quad-core processor as well as OCZ's DDR2-800 RAM and a couple of ASUS EAX1950XTX/HTVDP/512M graphics cards.
As the result of processor cool-down (presumably it was Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6700, 2.66GHz) to -196°C the system achieved the score of... 23,777 in 3DMark06.
Though we don't know FPS obtained in games, considering that the event is short and nitrogen easily evaporates, ASUS wasn't after peak overclocking, but was demonstrating the high reliability and performance of its products.
