Do More with Your Fastest Cores
Direct your most critical workloads to your processor's fastest cores with Intel® Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0.
Intel® Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0 is a combination of software and hardware that delivers more than 15% better single-threaded performance.1 2 3 Now available on select Intel® Core™ X-series processor family for Intel® X299 platforms.
A New Tool for Optimized Performance
With Intel® Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0, lightly-threaded performance is optimized by identifying your processor's fastest cores and directing your most critical workloads to them.
A Frequency Boost to Get More from Your Processor
Intel® Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0 doesn't replace Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0. It enhances it with a massive frequency boost on your fastest cores for more flexibility to get the best from your processor.2
Factors That Impact Intel® Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0
The availability and frequency upside of Intel® Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0 depends upon a number of factors including, but not limited to, the following:
- Type of workload
- Number of active cores
- Estimated current consumption
- Estimated power consumption
- Processor temperature
Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.05 accelerates processor and graphics performance for peak loads, automatically allowing processor cores to run faster than the rated operating frequency if they're operating below power, current, and temperature specification limits.2 1
Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology (Intel® HT Technology) uses resources efficiently, enabling multiple threads to run on each core and increasing processor throughput.
Product and Performance Information
Intel® technologies’ features and benefits depend on system configuration and may require enabled hardware, software or service activation. Performance varies depending on system configuration. Check with your system manufacturer or retailer or learn more at www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/architecture-and-technology/turbo-boost/turbo-boost-max-technology.html.
Benchmark results were obtained prior to implementation of recent software patches and firmware updates intended to address exploits referred to as "Spectre" and "Meltdown". Implementation of these updates may make these results inapplicable to your device or system.
Performance varies by use, configuration and other factors. Learn more at www.Intel.com/PerformanceIndex.
As measured with SPECint_base2006. SPECint*_base2000/2006 measures how fast a device completes a single integer compute task. SPECint*_rate_base2000/2006 measures throughput, or how many integer compute tasks a device can accomplish in a given amount of time. Comparison made using an Intel® Core™ i7-6950x processor versus an Intel® Core™ i7-5960x processor with otherwise identical system hardware.
