is an I7 930 an overclocked I7 920? Thats what people say on other forums I've read. - Page 6

post #51 of 57
Yeah... I had a lot of posts selected to reply to, but basically...

Turbo on a 920 can either enable 21x across all of the cores, or 22x on one and 21x on the other three (threads included).

So basically, with most recent BIOSes, you can force the 21x multi the exact same way you can use the 20x multi. If you turn off turbo and set 21x, turbo is still technically on, just not visibly.

On the 930 it's the same, except with 21x and 22x. However, the issue with 22x is that it is not stable at all. I haven't seen a decent overclock using the 22x yet. Everyone just uses the 21x multi with a 930 and 920 alike.

Actually, I'm pretty sure that when you hit the 22x on the 920, it's shutting down the other 3 cores via sleeps states temporarily. That's the real feature of turbo boost.

As far as I know, AMD's Thuban core CPU's don't actually shut down the unused cores, which is why some reviewers felt that AMD's turbo-boost equivalent was not as elegant as intel's.

Thanks, I was just about to explain this exact same thing, but you beat me to it. Well said.

I think its just down to the fact that the 920/920 just dont overclock as well with even multipliers for some reason. Its the same with the 20 multiplier.

Get a 920, still the best bang for your buck processor, and OCs like no other. You don't need anything more then a quad core, and you certainly don't need a dual-core anymore.
It's TURBO TIME!

I don't really know. I opened my 920 and set it to 21x
