[Engadget]Intel's Performance Maximizer tool

Z390 BIOS only. I've searched this forum, it is the intel sub forum. I thought it needed its own software news post. More people see it!

overclocks CPUs with one click
But only for certain 9th generation Core CPUs.Intel has launched a new feature designed to make overclocking more straightforward. Called the "Intel Performance Maximizer," the tool examines your processor's individual settings, then uses what Intel calls "hyper-intelligent automation" to tweak them for a performance boost. Basically, it's overclocking without having to fiddle around with custom settings in BIOS yourself.

My gut says this would work perfectly fine on any skylake processor but it's artificially locked...

I hope it's strong. I've been happy with the automated tuner in Afterburner.

Seems to me with that with modern CPUs having so many cores that an automated overclocking utility could achieve better results than a manual all-cores overclock could. In theory? What do we think?

So Intel is now trying to get more people to overclock so they can show stronger CPU performance vs AMD?


Now watch, the program has telemetry in it that phones your OC home to Intel so that they will be able to deny your warranty claim if you overclocked and now they have proof you did it

not bad for a soy bean farmer, eh?

Remember the golden rule of statistics: A personal sample size of one is a sufficient basis upon which to draw universal conclusions.
Upload the computer to Dropbox and provide a link to it so others may download it to examine and give advice for repairs.

A tool that could have been 1.5MB is 1.5GB, hahaha. And needs it's own partition on disk etc. For real. They could have at least added this to XTU as a button if they want to use a bloated app.
All it seems to do is try yet another conservative autoOC for nubs.

This is Intel's software version of the 'Emergency Edition' SKUs, trying to offer customers the 9900KS experience earlier to compete with AMD's Zen 2 (the 9900KS will only be out in Q4 2019).

Also, 1.5 GB download for a CPU overclocking utility? What? Not even programs written in Visual Basic were that bloated. And it creates a 16 GB partition on top of that when installed. Way too many downsides to be worth it (HT has to be on, for example), and then there is the thing below.

Bold for emphasis.

You may actually not be joking:
