FUD Zilla writes ASRock has developed a chip to aid unlocking of cores on new AMD motherboards. The site was told that this Unlock CPU Core feature will find its way to entry-level motherboards as well.
ASRock, the more affordable face of Asus has prepared a nice treat that will surely prove to be a hit with those that are running on tighter budgets. The treat comes under the name UCC chip – an acronym for Unlock CPU Core and, as the name suggests, it is used to turn your AMD triple core CPUs into full fledged quad cores saving you some nice cash in the process.
The guys have been kind enough to show us the procedure, which is extremely simple, thanks to the UCC chip. All you have to do is enter BIOS upon booting your computer and hit enter on one of the options, and you’ve got yourself a quad.
