The demise of the entry-level overclocker

HWBot makes the case for an unlocked, dual-core Pentium K processor as their research shows that 97 percent of entry-level overclockers have disappeared in five years time as Intel limited overclocking to select, more expensive parts. You can read the article over here.
Combining the clear interest of the community to have an overclockable and affordable processor with the historical evidence of the Entry level overclocker group as the likes of Pentium E2160, I believe there is demand and maket space for this type of product. The Entry level overclockers of today are the big spenders of tomorrow and therefore it is important to cater to their wish for the overclocking experience within their budget range. The almost completely wiped out group of Entry level overclockers usually feature the most enthusiastic people, as they are “in it” for the passion rather than financial gain or grand media exposure. We should treasure that group and make them feel welcome in the world of overclocking again.
