No reason to be upset with Intel. I'd be more upset with the mobo manufacturers. They had to of realized that sooner or later Intel would call them out for allowing the OC'ing of non-K chips on their mobo's. Seems like a good selling point though and I'm sure they made a fair amount off of selling said boards.

Now, if it were Intel pushing the feature and then pulled it I'd call bull on them.

It has been bleeding out of the PC market in the last 3 years. If they where only dependent on their cpu market to drive the company, they would have the same problems that AMD has.

Not a little blood, a lot of blood. Like 20% of value blood. If you are bleeding out, you try to stop the bleeding. To stop the bleeding you need to cut cost. And to cut cost you have to start rebinning chips. Chips that you would bin for the unofficial overclocking crowd needs to include chips that can not be overclocked but perform at spec levels. Instead of binning them at the i3 level, you bin them at the i5 level.

Sorry, you need to start to make as much money as possible from what you have. You need to cut down the bleeding to levels you can live with. Or you will become AMD. Intel is a solid company, but it has to watch their bottom line as the market shifts. If they do not, they will go the same way as AMD. They are not too big to fail. Cellphone can do 99% of what normal people want from a PC. Which means over priced, over powered CPU's are not the norm anymore. Overclocking, though popular with 10% of the pc users, is not popular with the 90% of normal users. Giving normal users a CPU that can overclock at a lost to the company is just dumb.

So you reserve your overclockable CPU for those that will buy them, and you rebin the lower cpu's to save money. OR you continue to bleed out money until you say screw it and scrap the whole project down to what will sell to the 90%.

Yes, this is the beginning of the end for overclocking pc's. Because to be honest, it really does not give you anything extra that modern software can use. We are currently limited by what the software can do, not by what the hardware can.

Or you know, Intel could just get off its complacent ass and actually try to give us more than +5% improvements every generation, and then maybe people will actually have an incentive to keep upgrading. thumb.gif

But sure, why not take the easy way out when there's no competition.

For once, some actual logic in this thread.

Someone should download all the BIOSes which allow overclocking non-K Skylakes and share them some where.

ROFL for those who are buying locked products that were never advertised as overclockable and expect to oc them. Gone are the days when you could oc almost everything. Now if you wanna OC you have to buy OC product which are advertised as such (K models). Get a K model and be happy.

I still have it. Other gear comes and goes, but that processor will always be with me thumb.gif

Blame AMD. If Zen does makes things somewhat competitive, we can continue to expect these generations jumps.
