Upcoming Core 2 Duos With Auto Overclocking?

Dan Warne from APCMag.com spent some time with Intel's Mooly Eden at the Intel Developer's Forum going on in Beijing and has some more information posted regarding Enhanced Intel Dynamic Acceleration Technology. We reported last week that EIDAT would be available with Penryn, but according to the story on APCMag.com, the technology will be available in the upcoming mobile Santa Rosa platform first.

"We call this processor Core 2 Duo but really it's Core 2 Duo on steroids. This microprocessor is going to be more powerful than the previous generation," said Intel's mobility chief, Mooly Eden. The new chips will be able to overclock one of the cores if the other core is not being used."

The new auto overlcock and disable of a core seems risky and partial to problems. Now we need to wait for AMD to release the K8L to give intel some competition.

I'm all for this. Why not? This is another more advanced for of clock gating based on workload, so if you want to just traditionally overclock, you can just load up the BIOS and do that. Otherwise, let the process run cooler and spin the fans down while you're not using it.
