Posted by fogview at 10:52 AM on March 7, 2009

Intel_logoWatch as we meet with an Intel official advocating safely overclocking a notebook and in fact providing tools for overclocking with select Intel chipsets.

Each notebook manufacturer can choose which method they want to do to cool the CPU. What Intel provides is a safe way to unlock the chips to easy overclock and provide a software utility that allows them (OEMs) to overclock within the same parameter (and still keep it cool). For core 2 extreme quad-core processor each OEM is provided with the utility for this overclocking capability and its to them to decide whether they want to built it in to the BIOS or not. The overclocking utility is out now so check it out at www.intel.com.
