Intel’s Kaby Lake Will (Apparently) Have Two Overclocking Tricks Up Its Sleeve

A news report from Fuad Abazovic, Editor in Chief of Fudzilla, talks about how Intel’s forthcoming Kaby Lake processor platform will feature two overclocking specific features that could hopefully make it easier to tweak and optimize. The features mentioned specifically are ‘BCLK aware V/F curve and AVX negative ratio offset’.

According to Fuzilla:

“The BCLK aware V/F curve is an adaptive voltage mode that works with BCLK and its main goal is to achieve higher clock stability. The AVX negative ratio offset allows excellent control over Intel Turbo Boost Technology while overclocking with increased stability.”

“Kaby Lake processors will be able to achieve higher frequencies at the same thermal envelope. For example, a 95W TDP Kaby Lake processor will be able to achieve a higher clock than the 95W Skylake. We expect that the successor to Intel Core i7-6700K will get to clock more than 4GHz, but not that much higher. The Turbo clock will be higher.”

Germany QAI says:

Wait, don't we have the "AVX negative ratio offset" already, for example on Asus X99? I remember one of these having the option to use a second multiplier for AVX applications. Or is this something else entirely?

Germany Hyperhorn says:

Yes, AVX ratio is already available for Broadwell-E/X99.
