AMD OverDrive tweaking for Phenom

Individual core clocks

Though we've recently seen that the performance of AMD's soon to be released Phenom X4 quad-core processors is looking quite underwhelming at the moment, there is one very cool feature that the platform can take advantage of and is sure to be particularly useful to enthusiasts and overclockers alike.


AMD call it "OverDrive", and it allows one to take their overclocking adjustments a step further with an array of individual settings being possible across all four cores. You can even set a different multiplier for each of the four cores, all this on the fly from within Windows.



Thanks to Expreview for the sneek peek!
