FX Turbo Core gives 1GHz boost

Written by Slobodan Simic

On half cores
Guys from Donanimhaber.com managed to get their hands on a slide that shows how will the AMD's Turbo Core Technology actually work with the upcoming FX series CPUs and it appears that there will be three different modes, two of which will be the actual Turbo.

According to the slide, AMD's FX series CPUs will be able to run at base frequency, also known as the nominal speed or simply an advertise speed with some TDP headroom. The Turbo mode will be able to increase speeds across all core, while there will also be a "Max Turbo" mode that will raise the frequency by up to 1GHz but on only half cores leaving the half in C6 shutdown mode, or simply disabled. This option makes sense as most games would certainly benefit from higher clock rather then a number of cores.

Of course, we are yet to see the FX series CPUs in action so we'll hold our judgment 'till we see some benchmarks.

Excellent AMD !

Now wait and see.. Intel will copy this rename it and launched it as their new technology !

This is so TRUE. Where AMD leads, Intel follows...

Intel probably couldn't make good graphics even if they did copy

Not to be a joykill but Intel has been doing this for some time now.

No they haven't. Do some research.

Really? What part of turbo boost and powergating havent they been doing?

if you dont overclock it's great, but if you do, its pathetic compared to Big Blue. Might i remind you all a 2500K at 3.3GHz can overlock to 4.8GHz pretty easily on ALL cores. 1.5GHz overlock or 1GHz... hmmm. AMD has sucked at implementing Turbo... look at how the Phenom II X6 does it now. fuuck you idiots drool over anyhing with a red badge on it you cheapskates. (i love spitting on the poor)

Not so impressive now is it?
