Intel Sandy Bridge Microarchitecture Preview
lol, that was a good one Ilya!
When overclocking a K processor, does raising the multiplier also raise the Turbo frequency by the same amount? For example, the 2500K would go from 3.3/3.7 to 3.6/4.0?
When overclocking a non-K processor, will the turbo frequency also be raised in the same way as with the K processor?
This is the first time I have seen that it will be possible to O/C by four steps on non-K processors.
Yes! And additionally K-CPUs allows changing standard Turbo Boost multiplier gain.
Yes, but non-K CPUs has unchanged Turbo Boost. It could be only enabled or disabled.
In this regard .. I won't even say "Go AMD! Don't go intel" ... I'd say just get the hell away from intel platforms. Buy VIA !
Also, the bragging about this transition being a 486-to-pentium -like transition is a load of cr*p. It's obvious that the improvements are only incremental and that in over 50% of the applications the performance gain will be close to ZERO! Only where encodind/deconding is involved would we see an "over 20%" gain. And that's nothing spectacular.
If I'd be a 1156 user .. I'd buy a good cooler and overclock the heck out of my CPU and skip this generation all toghether. its an economic crisis after all.
If I'd be a new user ... I'd never go Intel before seeing what AMD has to offer.
Now ... a beginner computer user can buy an AMD PC with a good mainboard and go from Single Core with good IGP to dual, then quad, then hexa core and one or two discrete video cards with multiple GPUs if necessary. Intel can't offer anything like that.
I can also relate to you when you diss AMD as trying to make money with trivialities with the Bulldozer, such are overclocking, while not being able to produce performance. AMD's subsidiary ATI is also dissed by you.
