Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Exclusive The Register has learnt today of a piece of Intel software, run from the DOS command line, which can make chips run at twice the speed. The software, called NEWSPEED.EXE will push processors up to the limit. The software is designed for OEMs and Intel staff themselves, one of whom said he had used it on a 450MHz processor, overclocking it to 550MHz for a year, without anything falling over. We understand that several hardware sites across the world already have copies of the Intel software, and are testing it. Intel's production line makes same family processors and grades them at speeds they think they will perform well at. The fabs typically give some headroom for processors. But the software, which Intel will not release publicly, takes advantage of that headroom to push up clock speeds. ®
