AMD's official video from the Austin overclocking event

While I was sliding down bannisters and having -160° alcohol poured on my hands, the AMD camera crew and the overclockers we were all there to see were putting together an honest-to-god documentation of the event. I forgot to post it a few weeks ago when it came out, so it’s not exactly breaking news, but if you’re interested in how these guys did their incredible overclocks using exotic cooling materials, there’s a lot more info here than in our little film.

You can see me in some of the shots. I’m famous! The music is a little over-the-top, but you know what else is over the top? Pouring liquid helium on a piece of silicon to let it process twice as fast as it’s supposed to.
