Has new AMD a Switch off system?





rodrigoz17
Weel as everyone know Intel have a switch off system that works when the temperature gets a limit (that the user set up).....well for eyers AMD can't have this advantage....my question is.....?? New AMD proccesors have the Temperature switch off system like intel??.....Thanks

Intel does not have this feature, it is your bios that has this feature. AMD nor INTEL have any control over this. I'm sure most motherboard come with a temperature protection setting.

what rodrigoz17 is talking about is Intel's internal thermal protection (internal temperature sensing diode) in its' CPU.

what you think rodrigoz17 is talking about is Intel's SpeedStep, AMD's Cool'n'Quiet and PowerNow!.

rodrigoz17: AMD is about 10 years behind Intel, and they don't have that technology yet. Cool'n'Quiet is not the same with Intel's internal thermal protection. it just an enhanced version of PowerNow!. if you turn on your AMD PC without running the proper software/OS, or without motherboard that support it, and remove the fan, it will keep running until it melt down, while Intel with its' internal thermal protection will modulate its' speed accordingly to avoid any damage.

coreymanshack: if you want to know more about this technology (CPU control speed without any help form motherboard, OS or software) you can read this PDF:

refer to section 7.3

No he said that it switches off when the temperature gets to a user set limit. Intel's SpeedStep is not user defined nor does it switch off the processor. The only thing that does this out of the box is the motherboard bios.

Thank you.

I'm talking the switch off wich is used in case your cooler stop working or the ambient temperature is too high to keep the temperature in low levels.....both proccesor with an specefic mother have the particularity to restart the PC or switch it off?

Yeah, it's all in the BIOS, press delete when your computer starts up.

intel915g is the name of the fsb, not the mobo.


yea it will let you get in in some way... when your computer is starting up, press delete, that is bios.
if you don't see the bios text before you boot into windows you need to reset your bios with jumpers on your mobo.
