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

derGoldstein 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

  • 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.

Like punning, programming is a play on words.
