Greetings fellow MatLab users,

I just wanted to let everyone know that we have developed and perfected an "overclocked" Intel Gulftown (the i7-980X).

The clock speed of this system is truly 5.0 GHz.

The Gulftown comes with 6 processing cores, and you'll get all 6 running at 5.0 GHz: true Supercomputing power.

This is not just some "benchmark-only" achievement, our computers run at that speed from startup to shutdown, for hours/days/or weeks at a time.

What this means: Your 16 hour MatLab simulations runing on a 3.3 GHz computer will run in under 8 hours on this hardware, and in several instances may execute in under 6 hours. Why is it better than the ratio of the clock speeds? By removing the CPU-bound process bottleneck, the Gulftown architecture symbiotically redistributes the workload, and the effective processing throughput is often 2:1 or better, even when compared with top-of-the-line chipsets.

This 5.0 GHz workhorse behaves like a 6.6 GHz version of what is on your desktop right now. And if your computer is even slightly older, say a 3.0 GHz or 2.8 GHz system, then the architecture difference would seem like a 7.5 GHz version of your computer.

We also have 4.0 GHz and 3.9 GHz systems for sale which are still faster than the fastest systems you can buy today.

Feel free to take a look at our website: or call 610.818.5063 in the Philadelphia suburbs. We will gladly answer any questions you have.

Feel free to ask for Bill, Ed, or Thomas.

Happy computing!
