WHAT IS INTEL going to be talking about at IDF in Shanghai in a week or two's time? In addition to the usual slate of announcements, one big topic is going to be overclocking, officially sanctioned overclocking at that.
Intel has realized there is money in gaming and the lunatic fringe of overclockers, so they are going to encourage it. They took the gaming crown with Skulltrail, and now the attention turns to the weirdos with multi-phase cooling rigs. IDF will have plenty of talks about how to eke out the best from Intel CPUs.
There is a lot of irony here, Intel was the first CPU maker to lock enthusiasts out of OCing, and now they are selling that back to the same group as a feature. Oh how times change, or don't as the case may be.
