I wonder what specifically that update is designed to do. Intentionally mess with the CPU multiplier? Did you disable Turbo too, or you left that alone?
Yeah the bclk is actually 132.75 which is why I'm getting that weird CPU frequency.
I too wonder what it does really. But before it, it would report strangely in 3dm06, so I'm assuming that it has to do with graphically intense applications. Because it would report correctly when using prime and whatnot.
As far as BIOS settings are concerned, Speedstep, Turbo, and virtualisation were all disabled from the factory. I didn't mess with too much in the BIOS as I still need to learn exactly what each thing does. But once I do, I'm gonna try for 4.0, I hear that I should be able to do this rather easily. I'm curious to see how it'll perform with the GSO's.
You think it'll be able to break 20k?
