Nah. I think the reason they have unlocked it is because they knew it would be slower than AMD's 32/64 TR and thus needs overclocking to make it faster.

I really do think it is that simple. However, they have limited the clocks somewhat by putting paste on it (I think that was also deliberate as they NEVER paste Xeons).

I think the reason they started pasting was to reduce clocks to reduce the amount of returns/RMA tbh. I really think it was all as simple as that.
