i have small question
which core duo cpu have fully unlocked multiplier?
No Intel processors other than Engineering Sample, or Extreme series have multiplier unlocked.
ok anyone selling dual or quad core ES? and how much ?
Engineering samples no longer have unlocked multis if they are a non-extreme edition
Thanks for the correction. Haven't played with non-Extreme ES processors lately.
since which series does intel started locking multi on ES?
Well, we have a few Core 2 ES processors here. They are all locked. So I think they started doing it for the entire Core 2 series.
Before you buy one... you better read this - Tech ARP - Why You Should AVOID Core 2 Duo Engineering Samples Rev. 3.0
thanks adrian for help
but if you have too many of them it would not be end of earth if you send one to me ahhaahhahahhaa
Hee hee check the specs in his siggy to see what he could do with it
LOL! The problem is we don't have enough!
It's getting hard to get samples from Intel.
Its worse to buy that, Maybe in the Future, If i will purchase a processor or even a motherboard, I will request that the processor is not an ES!
Hmm, is it me or actually only AMD has cheaper unlock multiplier processors I think like most replies here..only the X(for dual core) and QX (quad core) series processor of Intel has unlock multiplier
there must be a way to unlock them
i see that noone have tryd to find a way
I haven't found a way but there must be. There are extreme series CPU's similar to the others in almost every aspect except unlocked multiplier. This is not in the die its in the firmware
There's no way to unlock.
i cant say anything any more
just it would be great to find way
Generally, if you buy retail PCs, they will not give you an ES processor. ES processors will not come with any warranty paperwork.
Well, except for the QX and X series, all Core 2 processors are hard-locked. AFAIK, you cannot unlock them...
