Intel offers software upgrades for its latest low end processors

Do you remember last year in September when Intel gave consumers the option to upgrade some if its processors’ software with the use of a specially purchased unlock code? It didn’t go down so well with the consumers – after all, who liked the idea of purchasing a “crippled” processor? Well, it looks like Intel didn’t learn, or didn’t care – because they’ve done it again this year, this time with their latest low-end Core and Pentium processors.

No word on pricing for these unlock keys, but if they follow last year’s prices, it should be around $50 for a key. The upgrade will work on Core i3-2313M, Core i3-2102 and Pentium G622 processors. The upgrade will give better performance for photo, video, music activities, as well as offering a more responsive experience for the overall system.
