I'm eating lunch in the conference here in AMD's Lone Star campus while they're getting their custom cooling setup down to -250°F. Yes, -250°F, 120 degrees above absolute zero. Then they’re going to go for a couple world records while pouring liquid Helium onto the processor. It’s kind of awesome, in a really nerdy sort of way. We’ve got a gallery here and we’ll have video tonight or tomorrow; it’s actually pretty cool to watch.

As soon as I can cut my sweet footage and upload it, you’ll get to see that column of condensation blow up in real time. There’ll also be an official video with all the records and stuff coming from AMD in the next few days.

And also, we blew up some frozen watermelon and part of a burrito. You won’t see that on the official video.
