Tom heeft de primeur met de eerste review van Kryotech's nieuwe SuperG koelkast met 1GHz Athlon! Vergeleken met de oude Cool Athlon systemen heeft de SuperG een verbeterde compressor die nu 20Watt meer power levert. Kryotech blijkt uit flink aan de config getweakt te hebben, want de performance van de SuperG scaled bijzonder goed ten op zichte van de Cool Athlon 800 en 900. Hier een stukje uit de conclusie:
Smashing into the 1GHz realm, we have entered a new era in computing. The Kryotech SuperG is a premium product and it offers the very best in performance. This is what SuperG is, the best and that is without a doubt. In every single one of our tests it managed to beat out the very best that the competition had to offer. Even with a revised CPU core and enhanced chipset with higher bus speeds, which at times equals an Athlon at the same speed, the SuperG maintains a strong lead thanks to the wonders of arctic overclocking. It is hands down the fastest PC we've ever used. Not only is it the current performance leader but also it allows owners to step up to the next level thanks to the new design that has multiprocessing and hotter CPUs in mind. With this type of upgrade path they should remain the fastest PCs in the foreseeable future. SuperG isn't for everyone and that's obvious because it's a premium product and we all know that you pay for it. At $2450 the only cost effective feature is the ability to upgrade the Athlon PCB as soon as AMD releases their latest products and at the ability to cool 150 watts, I think you'll be set for quite a while. Another thing to remember is that this unit is by no means a little box that sits by the side of your desk. It isn't just the fastest machine but it's also the bulkiest and heaviest machine we have here in the lab. Don't expect to move this all the time unless you're looking to use it for a good workout.
