"Performance actually scales pretty nicely with the clock speed
increases, but we have to wonder how much better it would have been if the
NB portion was able to be clocked higher than 2 GHz. If I was willing to do
a bit of hex editing on the motherboard BIOS, then I would have the ability
to increase that multiplier. However, myself and the vast majority of users
are not exactly comfortable messing around with the BIOS at such a low level
and potentially bricking their motherboard."
