Intel B460 Motherboards Could Land With Overclocking Functionality

https://www.tomshardware.com/news/intel-b460-motherboards-could-land-with-overclocking-functionality

Quote

VideoCardz has shared photographs of Maxsun's B460 iCraft Gaming Endless (MS-iCraft B460M) motherboard. More importantly, the leaked marketing materials suggest that Intel might enable overclocking on the upcoming B460 motherboards.

Out of the two chipmakers, AMD has always been more generous towards overclocking as the company enables the feature from the premium X-series chipsets all the way down to the A-series chipsets. Intel, on the other hand, only allows overclocking on the Z-series platform, which typically commands a hefty price tag. However, Intel can potentially replant its posture on overclocking with the new wave of 400-series motherboards for 10th Generation Comet Lake-S processors. Maxsun's motherboard appears to support that theory.

The B460 iCraft Gaming Endless seemingly features three little, intriguing buttons on the rear panel. They are labeled with "L," "C," and a lightning bolt symbol. We are unsure what they do

 The short description, which contains a bit of marketing fluff, points to speeding up the processor with a single click. This could be a gimmick or an indication that B460 motherboards might have some level of overclocking.

Intel are running scared. Its kind of amazing how many things that used to be impossible suddenly become possible when you've got competition.

Never heard of Maxsun before...

 

Probably a lot more convincing if it was Asrock instead.

 

But this... could be a scam by a brand that is relatively unheard of

 

Regardless, would you entrust an overclocking enabled chip to a B series mobo by 'Maxsun'?

Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

So far I've seen Gigabyte, Biostar and Asus hint at something "big" happening on Thursday. Guess we'll find out then.

 

Also on overclocking, there's different levels of it. On Intel side, TDP isn't exactly enforced so not considered an overclock, and does not affect warranty if you modify the system limit. To do the same with AMD's equivalent PBO is considered a warranty voiding overclock to the best of my understanding, although I'm not 100% on that. The fully unlock overclocking is also of limited value on AMD side since there is so little headroom you can only get by essentially choosing not to be stable in all situations. Intel might be relaxing as they seem to be following in that respect, with each release getting closer to their limits than historically.

Did they ever say it was impossible? There's things they can do, and things they want to do. Now, they're doing things they have to do in response to AMD.

i wouldn't trust overclocking to single click "buttons" regardless of CPU manufacturer, chipset or MoBo manufacturer

Judge the product by its own merits, not by the Company that created it.

I'm calling into question the quality of the mobo, rather than the ease or method of overclocking

I know right, next thing you know i5s will have hyper-threading, all CPUs will be unlocked and B460 will support half-decent I/O. Ludicrous I tell ya! :D :D

Did I say they said it was? For us as consumers its (almost) always been impossible.
