(Pentium III results) KryoTech's minus 40C cooling system enables the AMD-K6-III/400 processor core, 64KB of integrated Level 1 cache, and 256KB of integrated Level 2 cache to run at the full thermally-accelerated processor speed of 500MHz. By contrast, Intel's external air-cooled Level 2 cache runs at only half the processor speed. KryoTech calls the high-performance combination of AMD's advanced TriLevel Cache(TM) design and its vapor phase refrigeration system Cool Cache(TM).
"With the Cool K6-III, consumer enthusiasts and business power users who need speed can experience tomorrow's performance today," said Rob DiGiacomo, vice president of marketing at KryoTech. "Why wait for Intel to deliver this level of performance?"
"We are very pleased to be working with KryoTech on the Cool K6-III line of PCs," said Dana Krelle, vice president of marketing at AMD. "The performance of the 500MHz Cool K6-III with AMD's advanced TriLevel Cache design and 3DNow! technology sets the new high-water mark for power users everywhere." KryoTech is selling the 500MHz Cool K6-III in a barebones configuration for $1,250 (U.S. retail). The company is taking orders online at kryotech.com for
