AMD Phenom II Can Hit 6 GHz!

It seems AMD is doing the right things lately - first with the Radeon 4000 series GPUs, then the Shanghai server chips, and - now, with the Deneb desktop processors.

The new procs - to be known as Phenom II - reportedly can be overclocked to 4 GHz using air cooling and AMD's stock fan. It can go to about 5 GHz using water-cooling, and get this - 6 GHz using liquid nitrogen.

The new procs will be formally introduced in January 9, at CES.
