Intel May Release Unlocked CPU’s

Intel have updated their processor line up to include some interesting CPU’s with unlocked cores.

In a move that is similar to AMD’s Black Edition CPU’s Intel is about to release new members to its processor family that will have multiplier unlocked cores.

At the moment Intel CPU’s are able to lower their multiplier allowing for cooler and slower running when performance is not being demanded from the user’s applications but no processor allows to increase the multiplier over the maximum rated clockspeed of the CPU at a set base clock.

AMD have been allowing enthusiasts to unlock the multiplier on its Black Edition CPU’s and now Intel is following suit according to some reports. This will interest the gaming market and enthusiast market in particular and could make these processors easier to overclock. Whether they overclock higher than their “normal” siblings remains to be seen.

Update: It is still not possible to unlock extra cores on Intel CPU’s, and model numbers being aew the i875-K and the i-655K with the K being the all important new designation according to some sources.
