Soon you might be able to upgrade your existing processor

Intel reveals that by paying some extra you can upgrade your processor for a few chips

No need to go for buying a complete new system if you need a little extra speed in your processor, not even go buy a new processor altogether. Your current processor has some hidden speed within them which will be made available to you if an extra cost is paid. To make it a little clearer let us suppose you have an Intel 3.1 GHz Core i3-2102 processor, now you can upgrade it to an Intel Core i3-2153 Processor, which will be 15% faster for business applications, 10% faster for Decryption and Decompression, 19% faster for financial analysis and editing Images.

These types of up-gradations were already seen in most of the software products, when they were distributed to customers with a low price or for free and called as trial versions having access to only few of the options. While later by paying for the product it gets fully accessibility.

Intel has so far made upgrades available for three of three chips as part of their program: The Intel Core i3-2312M, a 3.1 GHz Core i3-2102, and a 2.6 GHz Pentium G622 which will be upgraded to Intel Core i3-2393M Processor, Intel Core i3-2153 Processor and Intel Pentium G693 Processor respectively.

The price of the upgrades is still to be disclosed by Intel. The fact that our CPU can perform better than what it is actually providing can really disturb a few peoples but getting a upgradable processor for a less price is also another plus point for the users as when they need an extra they can get it whenever they are ready to pay.
