Thanks, I mean we call intel jews all the time, Just knowing that the non oc chips may be non oc for a reason is intresting.

It may even be a good thing

Imagine if intel put out only one sku, the 6700 and clocked it at 3.4, you get it because some CAN clock up to 4.9, but yours only clocks to 3.6

Personally, If this is the case, im 100% ok with paying, what 35$ more for one that is almost guaranteed to hit 4.5-4.6

hell, look at the boost rates

4.0 GHz 3.9 GHz 3.7 GHz

single dual quad

one core on each chip seems to guarantee 4ghz, and 2 are not that far down, but 4, that's .3 that .3 is likely the maximum clock that every working 6700 could sustain.

Now, you have another aspect, the power. A very important factor for some people is the power draw, and amd said 95, the clocks are likely just to keep it in that envelope while everything is going 100% as we see with the 480, there are 160 watt cards, and there are 90 at the same clock, so the normal card they put out was the assumed 150 watt draw, amd fucked up as some drew more watts, so a voltage lowering fixed it and increased clocks overall.

When you start looking at specs like they were based entirely on rng, the whole cpu gpu market gets a bit more interesting.
