What is Intel® Turbo Boost Technology and how does it work?


Environment:

Processors:
Intel® Core™ i5 and i7


How to fix it:

Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 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. Whether the processor enters into Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 and the amount of time the processor spends in that state depends on the workload and operating environment.

For Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 and Intel® Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0, there is no need to install any drivers or software for both technologies.

The feature requires a system with Intel® Turbo Boost Technology. Intel® Turbo Boost Technology and Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 are only available on select Intel® processors. Consult your PC manufacturer. Performance varies depending on hardware, software, and system configuration.
