Insights to Nehalem reports about some internals of Intels upcoming Nehalem architecture. Sounds interesting but i´m sure this turbo mode stuff will lead to many single thread performance benchmarks without practical meaning. Sound a little bit like this benchmark where a well known other chip company deactivated all cores except one, but not the respective cache. Thus they were able to execture large portions of the benchmark in the processor cache. Downclocking all cores except one and upclocking this one sounds like a similiar “benchmark-special”.
