Fudzilla lol.

Just because there is an on-die clock generator, it doesn't mean you can't overclock it.

Locked, completely locked. I don't want to have to pay $1000 on a CPU just to be able to overclock it. I don't think this is a wise decision and I think it'll piss a lot of people off.
I see you found the articles then

True, Fud isn't exactly a reliable news source as I pointed out when I mentioned it yesterday

That's true but if Fud are to be believed it is a conscious decision by Intel to lock them which is in no way connected to the technology.

This is Nehalem, it has nothing to do with the X38.
