FullOn3D heeft een interview gepost met AMD ventje Drew Prairie. Het het interview vind je errug veel info over de Athlon, o.a. dit stukje over de overclocking ...euh... remarking protection van de Athlon:
FullOn3D: Can you explain the type of overclocking protection the Athlon has (since Athlon’s can not be overclocked like the “standard” CPU)? Is this your method to combat Athlon remarking?
AMD: I wouldn't call it overclocking protection, I'd call it remarking protection. The goal has always been to make sure consumers get what they pay for and are not being taken advantage of. To accomplish this, we have implemented a way that makes it difficult for remarkers to adjust the clock frequency of the CPU without having some specific knowledge on how the CPU works. The clock has not been locked in any way.
