I will care to inform you that I know what they are trying to say, but I wholeheartedly disagree. K10 is just not going to scale that high. Maybe if they pump some serious voltage and dissipate some insane heat they will, but not under normal operating conditions. This is nothing but a useless marketing gimmick. They better direct their energy to getting those 45nm processors out FAST instead of wasting their time on "Turbo" buttons. My freaking Pentium 150 from 14 years ago had this too. It made it run at Pentium 166 speed. Insane eh
Investing in this is throwing your money away. You are better off making a charitable donation in the amount that you would spend on this. At least some money will go somewhere useful.
I love AMD, and I will hold out to upgrade until they release something good, but feeding this crap to people is very unprofessional of them. My opinion at least.
Either way, you said it was pointless if it doesn't allow the 9850 to OC to 3.6, which is exactly what they were saying it might do.....
