Gateway to Support Overclocking

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 1:54 pm

Gateway today introduced the FX530 Series Desktop PC. Geared towards enthusiasts, the FX530 comes with an Intel Core 2 Duo or Core 2 Extreme processor with ATI RADEON x1950 and x1900 CrossFire Edition Graphics. In addition, the FX530 will support Intel’s next-generation Quad-Core processing technology when available.

All FX530 models are Microsoft Vista Premium Ready and are eligible for a for a free upgrade to Vista Home Premium via the Express Upgrade Program.

A surprising part of Gateway’s announcement is that the Intel Core 2 Extreme X6800 dual-core processor can be ordered overclocked from the factory while retaining the full warranty. However, it is unknown what the clockspeed increase will be, or whether or not the end-user will have any control over clock frequencies.
