Better than doing something hard like innovating wondrous new features to X86 I guess.

or releasing a new architecture or smaller manufacturing process every year...


Wait a second... >.>

Each every two years. (With new architecture being modifications and improvements of previous gens)

I found it just too easy to kill the new i5/i7 CPU's - just install them into my Asus P8P67-Pro, and it will kill them stone dead straight away, no problem.

It seems like a way to get people to pay to cover a loop hole they left for return of product.
from what I can find, they allow for overclocking and do not give specification for max design limit. only the shipping speed and max turbo frequency. unless some one can find max operating recomendations from Intel, they have given all overclockers the ability to claim a replacement for unlocked CPUs that die.

Unlocked Core Multiplier1 Unlocked core multipliers provide easy overclocking of the processor and memory frequency, enabling performance beyond the processorís original specifications. Unlocked processors deliver the most flexible overclocking experience.

Intel has not tested, and does not warranty, the operation of the processor beyond its specifcations.

Or releasing something that's actually slower than the previous generation.


Can't say I really see the point in this insurance plan - it's not really targetted at me as I've never gone on a true suicide run, but I've never heard of CPU manufacturers not taking back failed silicon so long as it didn't have scortch marks on it, so...
