Intel Touts Core Multiplexing Technology

Intel Corp. may have another trump in its sleeves, which has never been discussed before. Apparently, the company has a feature called central processing unit (CPU) Core Multiplexing Technology, which is already supported by its mainboards. Unfortunately, nobody knows for sure what does it do, but some believe that it actually boosts performance of single-threaded applications on multi-core processors.

The most recent release notes for version 1304 BIOS update for Intel Desktop Board B975XBX mainboard state that "CPU Core Multiplexing Technology BIOS setup option" has been removed from main page", which should be a confirmation that either the technology that has never been discussed before is in development, is available in certain not introduced chips or has been abandoned from certain processors without being enabled.
