This SHIFT system is one of a kind in that it makes use of one of AMD's rare Phenom II X4 TWKR processors of which only a handful were made. In a previous eBay sale for charity, one of these processors went for over $10,000 alone. They are said to be special hand-picked chips which promise unprecented overclocking headroom.
