"It's obviously been the overclocking stuff. Interfaces are designed to run at their specified speed, but we've managed to get them to run well above specification." One of the features of the board we've seen has been the ability to run the HyperTransport bus incredibly fast. How was that possible? "If you really want to get the most out of the interface, you need to reduce the clock jitter. This is critically important on the HyperTransport bus. You need to have a really clean source. Due to the nature of HyperTransport, which operates at different clock speeds, the clean source becomes more important."

I've spoken to a couple of the crazy overclockers while I've been out in Santa Clara and they've experienced vCore jumping up and down all over the place - it'll probably need a vDroop mod to stop the vCore jumping around.

3200 vs 200 doesnt even offer some sort of chronological order for consumers.

What the hell is Xpress anyway?? You know it's a bad naming convention when ONLY the parent company uses it when referring to products.
