Intel has decided to discontinue its Performance Tuning Protection Plan (PTPP) program, an extended warranty plan that offers protection from damage that occurs while overclocking.
The Performance Tuning Protection Plan. was a great plan for owners of Intel’s K-series processors, in which Intel gives you a one-time replacement chip to cover the damages that occurred by overclocking the processor, for a small additional fee, which typically costs between $19.99 and $29.99.
No reason has given by Intel, on why they decided to kill the Performance Tuning Protection Plan. So if you overclock your processor now, keep in mind that Intel won’t be there to recover the damages. Unless you’re using a Xeon W-3175X for overclocking which has this plan by default.
You can read Intel’s message about this down below:
To PTPP Customers,
The Performance Tuning Protection Plan program has been discontinued.
As customers increasingly overclock with confidence, we are seeing lower demand for the Performance Tuning Protection Plans (PTPP).
As a result, Intel will no longer offer new PTPP plans effective March 1, 2021.
Intel will continue focusing on delivering amazing processors with tuning flexibility and overclocking tools like Intel Performance Maximizer and Intel XTU.
All existing plans will continue to be honored through the duration of the processor warranty period.
For questions, contact Intel Customer Support.
