3GHz Phenom system pictured


— 5:03 PM on July 26, 2007

We just mentioned that AMD showed off a desktop quad-core system clocked at 3GHz and outfitted with triple Radeon HD 2900 graphics cards at its analyst day today. Here are a couple of pictures of the system in action:



Source: AMD.

One thing worth pointing out is that the chip is running at 3GHz with just a regular stock heatsink and fan. AMD's souped-up processor also seems to be fitted on a reference board based on AMD's own RD790 chipset. We saw a number of similar boards at Computex last month. They support Socket AM2+ processors, HyperTransport 3.0, and feature four PCI Express x16 slots, although in the system shown above, only three of the slots are populated.

Like what we're doing? Pay what you want to support TR and get nifty extra features.
