+ - Intel to Offer CPU Upgrades via Software-> 1

Submitted by derGoldstein
derGoldstein (1494129) writes "Intel will again offer CPU upgrades through software. In the past, the upgrades gave you HyperThreading and more L3 cache. This time upgrades will actually increase CPU frequency: "Intel® Upgrade Service offers three different upgrades on second generation Core processors: Intel® Core i3-2312M processor, Intel® Core i3-2102 processor, and Intel® Pentium® G622 processor". The page provides benchmarks of the 3 upgrade options."

Intel to Offer CPU Upgrades via Software

Comments Filter:
  • but I feel like Intel has been under-clocking its chips for years and is now selling a patch that will unlock more of the potential power that's already hard coded into your CPU. If this is a free upgrade, I take this back and applaud them for this. The fact that they call it a service leads me to believe otherwise though. I guess its just overclocking for n00bs when you really think about it. I'll be interested to read the rest of the comments on this article.
