My oh my, these new Core 2 Duo/Extreme chips are coppin' a real floggin' left, right and centre since their debut, but this feat by overclocking enthusiast "coolaler" of the VR-Zone forums just has to take the cake. With much help from extreme LN2 cooling, he's managed to ramp up his X6800 to a whopping 5.5GHz which resulted in a SuperPI 1MB pass of just.......... wait for it........... 9 seconds flat!

Head over to coolaler's forum thread for more pics and info on his massive accomplishment.
