Ivy Bridge Questions...

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Is Ivy Bridge going to come with an Unlocked Base Clock, like how the older i3/i5/i7s have?

I was rather let down when I heard that Sandy Bridge 1155 had a locked BCLK.

Why would Intel do this?

Please, back up your statements, thanks..

Nobody knows, youll have to wait and see like everbody else.
Intel locked the BCLK to force you to spend the extra cash on the 2500K or 2600K if you wanted to OC

Considering Ivy Bridge is the sidegrade to Sandybridge, I foresee the BCLK being as limited as Sandybridge.

Especially so since Ivy Bridge will also be on LGA 1155 and 2011. The BCLK isn't locked per se, the ratio is just lower than older i7's. A high binned P67 can usually get 107-110MHz on the BCLK which is a pretty decent amount considering the higher CPU Multiplier and higher RAM Multipliers than previous gen i7's.
