Intel Nehalem to allow overclocking, some processors will even encourage it
According to rumours published earlier, it looked as if Intel were to stop overclocking on mainstream Nehalem processors
. Well, according to our source today it appears that the suggestion was false, and that Bloomfield and Lynnfield, key processors of Intel’s upcoming Nehalem family, will indeed feature overclocking capabilities for up to 16 CPU cores.
Credible information we were able to obtain from industry sources suggest that rumors about Intel preventing users from overclocking Nehalem processors are false. From what we have learned, Intel has very healthy silicon on its hands. It appears that there are some challenges related to overclocking, especially in the memory controller area. However, it is unlikely that there will be anything that prevents overclocking of the CPU cores.
Now I'm excited! Feel free to voice your opinion in our forum
