Computer maker Alienware announce a new lineup of ultra high-end desktop computers with overclocked Intel Pentium 4 Extreme Edition 3.40GHz and 3.60GHz chips. Alienware spiced up their clock rates to 3.80Ghz and 4.00Ghz respectively.
Excess heat generated by processor with elevated clock-speeds is controlled by Alienware’s exclusive ultra-quiet Liquid Cooling technology, which cools components with specially formulated liquid and gold-plated, pure copper coolers.
Intel Corp. is expected to start supplying the Pentium 4 chips at 4.00GHz only in Q1 2005.
Default configuration of Area-51 ALX includes Intel Pentium 4 Extreme Edition processor at 3.80GHz, 1GB of dual-channel DDR2 533MHz memory, NVIDIA GeForce 6800 Ultra graphics card, 148GB WD Raptor HDDs in RAID 0 configuration, Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS audio card, Microsoft Window XP Professional and so on. The default pricing is $5458.
Later this year Alienware plans to offer ALX computers with two graphics cards.
