BUCKINGHAM, England, March 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Herald the arrival of a new age in Workstation performance: the Cryo Octane EDP-WS. This dual processing behemoth has 12 physical cores, 24 threads, up to 48GB of memory at 1600MHz+ and a colossal core speed of 4.50GHz+ (35% faster than the stock Intel CPU). All of this, lovingly cooled by a custom designed high-flow water cooling system carefully built into a beautifully crafted aluminium chassis. The most important ingredient is applied finally in the form of the unique Cryo Boost(TM) Triple Overclock performance-enhancing process and technology.
The Cryo team have form when it comes to breaking benchmark world records but 'SPEC CPU2006(R)' is the mother of all benchmarks. It executes a barrage of tests that last numerous hours, simulating real world tasks such as AI game theory, bioinformatics, compilers, data compression, fluid dynamics, physics, speech recognition, video processing and weather prediction. Usually the preserve of 'Blue Chip' deep-pocketed vendors like IBM, HP, Cray, SGI and Sun, it would prove a true David vs Goliath contest. Cryo were confident that agility and smart thinking could out-manoeuvre the dollars and might of computing industry giants.
A new record speed for a dual CPU workstation:
