Hoewel de Thunderbird nog niet gereleased is vond AthlonOC.com het al nodig om een artikeltje in mekaar te draaien over het overklokken van deze processor. Zij baseren zich hierbij op de foto's van HardOCP, waarop o.a. de weerstanden zijn te zien die de multiplier en voltage settings bepalen:
My theory is that the resistor positions for multipliers 7.5x - 10.5x and the voltage have not changed. Then AMD went back down to 6.0x for 1.1GHz, 6.5x for 1.15GHz, and 7.0x for 1.2GHz. This is really guessing right here, but its possible the 500 and 550 position would be for the 1.25GHz and 1.3GHz settings. If this is true, which some of it is, that means that all current Gold Finger devices should be 100% compatible with the Thunderbird. The only thing GFD manufacturers would need to do is make a new settings chart for the Thunderbird.
Also going back and looking at Tom's 1.1GHz Thunderbird pic, the voltage looks to be the same as the 750MHz model. That means it is running at 1.7v as well IF the voltage settings are the same on the Thunderbird and Athlon. The final production Thunderbirds are supposed to run at 1.6v core voltage for default.
