CES: ORIGIN PC Announces the GENESIS Now Overclocked to 5.7GHz

The fine folks over at Origin continue to push the limits of PC gaming hardware by driving their GENESIS desktop even further, overclocking its Intel Core i7 Hex-Core CPU to a record 5.7GHz. How can that much power not melt the entire system into a very expensive puddle of silicon and plastic? With the exclusive new ORIGIN PC Phase Change cooling system, which cools the processor to sub zero temperatures as low as -40 degrees Celsius.

What kind of video card does this bad boy boast? It’s certainly not an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 3GB.

It’s four NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 3GB cards in SLI.

Sweet mother of mercy. There’s no doubt this behemoth can run Skyrim on ultra-high settings; the question is, can it run four instances of Skyrim on ultra-high settings?

Even with it overclocked to 5.7, you can still only run 1 copy of photoshop at a time.
