Intel IDF'13 San Francisco: X79 Platform Overclocking, SSD Overclocking, And DDR4 Memory

Another Intel Developer Forum ("IDF") is coming up next month (September 10-12) in San Francisco. It looks like the most interesting topics for us, overclockers, are the overclocking workshop featuring the "Intel® Core™ i7 4xxx Extreme Edition" on the X79-based platform. The overclocking workshop features also

  • Overclocking architecture of the Intel® Core™ i7-4xxx series processors on Intel® X79 Express Chipset based platforms
  • Overclocking architecture of the desktop and mobile 4th Generation Intel® Core processors
  • Live demonstrations and expert tips from an industry partner on how to push the limits of Intel® unlocked processors using software and hardware tools from the enthusiast ecosystem
  • One of the first public demonstrations of overclocking the Intel® Core™ i7 4xxx Extreme Edition processor
  • First public demonstration of overclocking Intel® SSDs
  • First public demonstration of AppTune beta based on Intel® Extreme Tuning Utility (Intel® XTU)

In addition to the introduction of the new X79 processors, there will be a couple of lectures on DDR4 Memory. Attendees will be able to get a deeper look at what's coming in 2014.

More info on the event and lectures, here.

Overclocking Intel SSDs :eek:

Belgium Massman says:

Oh yeah, XTU :)

Russian Federation Antinomy says:

I'm afraid, this is only about "SATA interface" overclocking (nothing new, interfaces were being overclocked over a decade ago) and has nothing to do with overclocking SSD itself. Or I'm wrong and XTU can squeeze some juice from an old SSD 320? That would be something new and really interesting.

Belgium Massman says:

Actually, all micro-controllers of SSDs can be overclocked. It's just that no company has ever provided the tools for it. SSD OC tools are more secret than Afterburner Extreme :D

Poland Xtreme Addict says:

It seems that Intel is our (oc community) best partner now :D Hope one day Nvidia will also stop their stupid politics.

United States Gunslinger says:

Looking forward to this :)

France marmott says:

I'm just wondering who would like to mess up with his SSD containing data. It's nice to see it can be done but I'm not sure to see what it will bring except problems.

United States Splave says:

wondering the benefits of this :P

Belgium Massman says:

No benefit? Increased instability? Causes data loss? Now I'm definitely in!

United States Splave says:

haha my thoughts exactly

Belgium leeghoofd says:

it's just for pcmarking :p

I'll take 20 of them :D

United States Schmuckley says:

I raid-0 4 ssds into a 10GB array :D With NOTHING on it.(exceptPcm05)

United States Gunslinger says:

wtf is pcmark?

Canada Vinster says:

lol... I'd like to OC my older SSD's, the ones that don't cap out my SATA2 ports... I can see the benefit there.. i backup frequently so I don't care about data loss... Newer SSD's that already cap SATA3 speeds, I wonder what the benefit there would be... Now if I could OC my RAID cards... that would be the ticket.... Vin
