[CW] Meet Intel's Fastest CPU Running at 4.4GHz - Page 3

post #21 of 60
Wonder if you'd be able to unlock them. Would that be like dividing by zero?

Seems fair.
AMD's FX series/Opteron (Bulldozer) chips will also be shipping with 4Ghz+ clocks (albeit via turbo boost).

That the other cores are disabled sucks though. Unlike AMD there is no way of unlocking cores on Intel.

Actually this is quite disappointing; a 4.4Ghz dual core shouldn't reach 130W, when considering the die is based on a 3.3Ghz six core that also runs at 130W. Disabling 2/3 the cores would pretty much cut the TDP in 1/3rd and even with the clock speed difference I wouldn't expect a 4.4Ghz dual core to exceed 95W. Very power inefficient CPU methinks. They just wanted to reach 4Ghz stock and hold the useless trophy for it. IMO, what a waste.

hmm gives me an idea.
>Intel leaves all 6 cores and ht alone
>stock clock at 4.4ghz.
>put warning label on it
>sell as super extreme.

130w tdp does seem high, even though 12mb of l3 running at 4.4ghz as well can consume some juice but 130w? Well consider the i3 (with igp) is around 73w at stock up to 3.33ghz so about double the tdp of an i3 for this chip at ~1ghz higher.

Sell as a server chip and charge double what you would for an extreme edition chip.

Power inefficient compared to what? These processors' high clock speeds would be wonderful for workstations focused on lightly threaded work.
Btw, the huge 12MB cache is still active. Cores aren't the only things that produce heat.

If they left all cores active it will easily retain stability but at much higher power like 200W. My Core i7 @ 4.4Ghz consumes ~ 250W of power.

It's because of the cache, like the poster above you said. There's enough cache for 6 cores, but 4 of those cores are disabled. None of the cache was disabled.

This. 12 MB of L3 cache for just 2 cores is just ridiculous...

Would it be impressive if it was running on this?
