Intel needs to focus on the need of consumers, the foreign media reported on Jan. 17. As a leading technology company, it is very dangerous to be wise after the event. For example, the COPY and PASTE functions were built into the operating system of the new smartphone. You may need little technical skills, but Microsoft refused to take these features into Windows Phone 7 when it was first released. This action seems very reckless, but in fact, it is not true. It is quite obvious that Intel is against the will of consumers, which can be seen in their later practice.
Let’s take a look at the experiment on upgradable CPU products. These products have unlocking capabilities for some hidden properties. However, once some low-end Pentium and Clarkdale dual-core processors malfunction, the capabilities will be limited. If you want the code to work properly, it will take $50 to pay for the upgraded chip which will help you get the performance of Hyper Threading and 1 MB of cache. The working mechanism of these components is not of importance, but some BOIS support issues of the main system build plate are involved. Also, Intel usually sets some hiding or blocking properties on the CPU mainly for the market segment and promotion of new products.
However, it is a kind of cheating to make money with a clear conscience. Vendors would tell customers that the CPU they bought last month actually has many hidden capabilities, and if you can afford another $50, we’d like to offer support to unlock capabilities.
Of course, ADM also dabbles in this area. Some of the multi-core processors have hidden cores and can be unlocked, but AMD never charges customers extra fees or commits. Consumers can purchase the TriCore Phenom processor and then pay to unlock the fourth core. If the fourth one doesn’t work, the PC won’t boot, but the chip works with the TriCore model and can still work. In contrast to the ADM ways, Intel is a bit malicious because it intends to sell hidden properties when its chips are on sale.
Appearance of Intel processor for PC Sandy Bridge calls for termination of overclocking products based on Intel’s integrity setting. As for USB, PCI-E, CPU and Uncore, their reference frequency increase would be limited to 2%-3%.
The problem is that Intel has realized that there is the market of bypassing CPU which offers unlock CPU clock ratio with adjustable core frequency speed and plans to launch K series chip to fight the market. . Although the price of the K-series chip is still unknown, apparently people would not like to buy the low-frequency vision Intel desktop chip considering the price. An overview of Intel’s brand strategies can tell us that it is against the will of consumers, including Core i3, i5 and i7, and as a result, ordinary PC consumers can no longer buy the ideal CPU. The related integrated circuit is PIC16F886.
