This might make people go with AMD more than intel regardless of how well Intel's new CPU's do against their rival.

Fudzilla is all hearsay they rarely have any sources and if they do it's from a third party which is why all Fudzilla and Inquirer articles do not make it on news here. I wouldn't lose any sleep over this.

i believe this;just think intel is so confident now and they don't like that people buy mostly the cheap parts and oc to the performance of the high-end ones;mb manufacturer can't do nothing if they restrict the access to the northbridge which will be incorporated than Amd may had a chance...

It'd make sense to me, drop OC from their entry and mid-range CPU's, leave a premium on their enthusiast products. People would pay for it, and being that AMD needs to be overclocked to keep up with Intel at stock speeds... well...

I'll believe it when I see it. I'm just saying it is within the realm of possibility.

I'm not sure if intel will bother doing this or not. Just seems like a lot of trouble on their part to stamp out a very small % of users for overclocking the low end chips (yes i'm afraid despite what we like to think we're definately not the norm).

the thing is ... most overclockers who buy mainstream products by that they can afford, then overclock .. not have a target performance and see what can overclock to that expectation. Horse behind the cart intel.

If this is true, I won't be touching an intel Nehalem, not even with 1000m barge pole! I'll be going AMD again. I can see a lot of others doing the same if this were true, though I don't think intel would really be stupid enough to do that. Wouldn't it pretty much make high end chipsets pointless, as in intel's high end chipsets?

Not really, the high end enthusiast parts would still be there. This would just cut out the mid and low end parts from overclocking. The parts that have the most to gain. I'd imagine they're making processors that are TOO good, and can't speed-bin the lower end without tossing in a good amount of faster processors. Locking them up allows them to keep volume and product on the shelf without worrying about losing sales on their high end, due to the fact that smart overclockers will take it and run it to high end performance levels.

imo, if this comes to pass, speed-binning has failed at Intel due to the high quality of their processors. Odd disadvantage, eh?

Watch only the thousand dollar chips will overclock, now that would be funny.

They don't want people buying cheaper chips and oc them to more expensive chips.

If there is a way to lock you out from doing it, I'm sure intel could it.




Good thing AMD fully supports overclocking.


I guess Intel missed the email that's why people buy Intel these days is because of the OC you can get.

I agree, at least for now. If this move by Intel is true, then AMD will have to really jump on it. The only thing is that AMD seems to be focusing more and more on the commercial sector. I wonder if they will really try to capitalize on this? If things keep going the way they are then I can't see Intel being in any immediate trouble when they drop OC capabilities from their "non-enthusiast" lines. I'm not heavy into OC like most forum users, but it's nice to have the option. I for one will probably go AMD as well however.[If the performance of new Phenom is any indicator to the future of AMDs' non-commercial lines.]

well the 3 type of sockets are aimed at 3 user groups
1 LGA1160 Mainstream
2 LGA1366 ( High-end mainstream - Extreme desktop ) (l, 1x 4.8~6.4 GT/s QuickPath, Dual and Triple channel 800/ 1066/ 1333/ 1600 MHz DDR3 )
3rd one at server and work stations

It isn't going to happen, and this news comes out every time Intel changes sockets. The same thing was said about the Pentium 4s when they moved to LGA775. Anyone remember the 10% overclocking lock that was supposed to be in the LGA775 chipsets?

what about multiple sockets
the way it looks, there will be no server chips for the non server type sockets

obviously this isn't certian but what about multiple sockets? is it certian that it will happen?

surely both amd and intel tried to stop overcloking years ago when they locked multipliers..

its only the mobo makers that make it possible now.. who is kidding who if they think the cpu makers like enthusiasts.. intel unlock thousand dollar chips and amd now unlock their top end (but cheap) chips purely in a desperate attempt to sell them cos they perform that badly..

with the (coming) new chips intel might be able to stop overclocking.. but anybody who thinks they wouldnt stop it now if they could is living in dream land..

trog

ps.. as for amd.. well the way its going they might not even be in business in a years time..
