article isnt up yet, but this looks interesting

i get the feeling this will force 50% of people who buy low end chips for overclocking to move back to amd (a good thing) and the other 50% to wait a bit longer and buy a more expensive chip...

that would be a very very very wrong decision coming from Intel. tbh we buy cheap cpus and overclock them so we dont have to buy more expensive ones, not vice versa.

Yep that'd be a pretty bad move if they did this. I think they've got it worked out pretty well at the moment tbh. Release the expensive chips first, those that can afford them buy them, those that cant hold on for the lower-end ones.

We may see a comeback from AMD at this rate.

Awesome article Bungy!

Ta muchly mate.

I just think it's ridiculously stupid... Its not as if they don't get plenty of sales from their whole range. If they were only selling their cheaper CPU's then it might make a little sense but that isn't the case.

I honestly don't understand it.. If it's true that is.

that.

I won't be buying one if you can't OC, I guess the top chip will be anywhere between £700-£1000 judging by previous models... Guess I'll stick with 775 and get a cheap qx9650!

This better not be true.

I was waiting for you to roll up in here...

Pretty much what I expected to be honest... A few lil cussing smilies.

Well hopefully they will consider the equivalent to something like a Q6600 as high end so they wont be locked.

It does all depend on what they consider to be high end and whether they really do want to commit comercial suicide .
