Re: Gigabyte Latest BIOS
Are there actually any benefits to OCing the QPI? After all, there's already way more bandwidth there than needed. With the 1336 i7's being re-badged server chips, the QPI's large bandwidth is for multi CPU intercommunication.
The newer Lynnfield i7's have done away with the external QPI and just use it for inter-core communication and there seems to be no performance loss.
