Okit took me a little while to actually decide to comment on this.  Ok, fastest rig on the planet, a good PR campaign.  To anyone that is a"Power User" that means squat.  So what your rig can gain anextra 4% in fps in Crysis, it can do a 5% extra in Premiere Pro.  I do not know about you but measuring superiority in percentage marks so paltry is really just. . . well Er, obtuse.  I do not care about these menial advances in percentages.  If you want to impress me with"German Engineering" the do it the right way.  Make a rig that even the best of us cannot build on our own in the next six months (if money were no object).  Make a rig that will perform top of its class for thenext year and no one knows why except for the "German Professionals".  You can't and you never will.

Now don't get me wrong, I'm not knocking the German people or there engineering ability,I'm just saying that anyone that can make that claim in an advertisement shouldbe able to back up their statement with hardware that no one can dispute. But again that is the advertising game for you and most users of this website and magazine already know this.  

I am looking forward to the specs on this rig compared to MaxPCs zero pointsystem and to the three months after that these fastest rig in the world states get beat by some unknown PC manufacture for half the price.

Comming from a background in the automotive industry I am so tired of hearing that some car technology is good just because germans made it. Now I have to listen to the same BS in the computer world also. German car hype is worse than apple mac hype. I'm sorry, but having to twist a hand knob 400 times to move my seat back 3 degrees is not an innovation. And why the hell is fujitsu, the most japanese company since mitsubishi touting german technology? Sorry, but the germans haven't perfected anything since the blitzkrieg.

The fact that Americans like you are the most concerned with seat adjustment and cup holders is the exact reason their cars are usualy better. And at lesat their knobs dont fall off in the first 5 days like they do on a Chevy.

 

This thing is still stupid tho. And the Germans dont have ANY name for them selvs in the computer world. Just because their over glorifyed in the auto world doesnt mean shit in computer land, its not like they created their own x86 octo-cores to compeate with intel or amd. They dont have access to any tech that no one else in the world does. And "ultra clocking" is still the same stupid fake imaginary term it was when they called it "super clocking" the last 50 times we all heard it.

yeah honestly every german car my family has had (volkswagen, mercedes,
porsche) with exception to my dads original '72 beetle has had horrible
reliability issues. my moms e300 flashes a check engine light ever
month and guzzles wiper-washer fluid. our 1998 new beetle needed a new
transmission, ecu and fuel pump after 45000 miles. the reason im
commenting on this is because i feel this a big issue with american
consumers. the big reason german cars are so expensive is simply
because of the name. also, they build them to be very unaccesible to
the owners or other mechanics, so that only they can fix it. german
cars are the apple of the car world.

Have you worked in the industry? Your precious german cars break like everything else. The difference is your "far superior" german engineering is a pain in the ass to fix and costs 4 times as much. The reference to seat back knobs is just icing on the cake and something anyone who has gotten into a german car without power seats will tell you is a pain in the ass.

if it does become fastest on the planet, bets are that it will not hold that position very long at all.

Agreed, Morgans Law will come into effect.

 

Funny, the term "German Overclocking" reminds me of the Shamwow commercial: "Made in Germany, you know the Germans make good stuff!"
