CPU_OverDrive


Unit:SDL_cpuid
Class: none
Declaration: function CPU_OverDrive: Boolean;

The function CPU_OverDrive returns TRUE if the processor is operated above the manufacturer’s specified frequency (e.g. operating at 800 MHz with a processor that has been manufactured to run at 600 MHz). A processor being operated above its frequency specification (overclocked) may become unstable, or produce unpredictable or erroneous results. These conditions might not be readily apparent and the life of the processor may also be shortened.

Example: This function is used in the following example program (see http://www.lohninger.com/examples.html for downloading the code): cpuinfo
