Intel Core i7-990X Stealthily Hits Shelves, Origin PC Overclocks One To A Lap-melting 4.6GHz

These days it's less about the megahertz and more about the cores, but custom PC maker Origin isn't leaving either benchmark untouched. It's taken the as-yet-unannounced six-core, 3.46GHz Intel Core i7-990X processor and pushed it up to 4.6GHz -- a full 200 hertz more than the company's previous hotness, a 4.4GHZ Core i7-980X. 

The 990X is now available in the company's desktops as well as theEON-17 laptop -- which is honestly pushing the boundaries of lapablity. You'll find the Core i7-990X at the likes of Mwave and Newegg for what sure is a perfectly reasonable $1,050 right now.

Whoa, lap melting would indeed be the correct thing to say for this. Seriously I wonder just exactly how hot that thing gets. That is some pretty impressive power for a laptop though!

If you're going to get a laptop it's definitely better to save your money and go with an amazing one like this. I was planning on getting a cheap netbook but I may save up for this one. Thanks for the tip.
