Hi all I just build a new rig with intel Core i7 2600k and MSI P67A GD55 mobo. It working fine at the beginning and after a few days I encounter a problem that is my turbo boost function is not working. I tried prime95 to stress my core it still won't work even in 1 core. I check the bios the turbo boost is enable. I reset my BIOS and the turbo boost works in the 1st boost and again lost function for the 2nd boot even I shut down my pc for 10 hours. Someone help me please !
 

A:Intel Turbo Boost not working

Check to see if you have an MSI overclocking application that came with the board that is overriding the BIOS settings. That's the only thing I can think of.

i have a core i7 3610QM. i understand Turbo Boost is enabled through the motherboard bios. i understand i can monitor it when the Intel Turbo Boost Technology Monitor 2.5 program is open and running. what i am not sure of, is whether or not the turbo boost works all the time, with or without the Technology Monitor program running, or does it only work when the program is open and running.

A:Intel Turbo boost, When is it working?

Turbo boost only activates when you need more processor power. Download CPU Z and look at bottom left corner, that is your current speed, If you put your CPU in a stress test like prime95 this number will increase because of the extra power needed

I understand what Intel Turbo Boost technology is and how it works.

What I would really like to know is "....does it do what it says on the can...." In practice does this technology really work seamlessly in the background as your computing demands vary depending on your current needs?

I am currently considering the purchase of a computer with an Intel® Core™ i5-4200U Processor that is rated 1.6 GHz and 2.6 GHz with TurboBoost, incorporating a 3 MB cache. Some of the work that I do is as mundane and low-usage as Word or Excel and a 1.6 GHz processor is more than adequate. But much of the work that I do is graphically intensive and I expect that at 1.6 GHz the processor will fall over but at 2.6 GHz it should be just fine.

In the real-world of hands-on use is this Intel Turbo Boost technology the answer to vastly different workloads such as that described above...

Q1. What is the MAXIMUM Turbo Boost technology for i5 760 2.8 Ghz without overclocking the CPU? below are my hardware specs.
Q2. Example: An application needs 3 Ghz clockspeed to run smoothly.

Will i5 760 @ 2.8 Ghz convert to 3 Ghz?
Specs:

i5 760 2.80 Ghz

I need a good simple answer Q1 and Q2.

Tnx!

A:Intel i5 760 @ 2.8 Ghz Max Turbo Boost Technology

Max Turbo Frequency 3.46 GHz

The CPU automatically steps the multiplier based on load and number of cores used:



Up to 1 core used at 3.46 GHz. On CPU extensive apps, expect to get the 2.93GHz speed, as all 4 cores will be used. This is of course at the stock 133MHz BCLK.

Dell Latitude E6420 is my laptop with Windows 7 Enterprise. Turbo Boost is enabled in BIOS but is disabled in OS according to AIDA64. I managed to install Intel Turbo Boost Monitor but it says that Turbo Boost is not enabled. Although i still see standard speed but i also see Energy Saver appears when CPU runs at less than standard speed.

What is interesting is that Turbo Boost gets enabled in OS only when SpeedStep is enabled as well in BIOS. This slows down CPU to ~700Mhz and stays there no matter what. Enabling\Disabling C-State did not do anything and there is no multiplier.

Intel Chipset Utility is latest version and i did not find any Turbo Boost driver, nor any service in Administration.

Hi everyone, I have an Acer Aspire 7745g laptop, 8gb ram, ati 5650m graphics card, and an i5 460M dual core with hyperthreading, clock speed 2.53 ghz and Windows 7 64 bit
When playing games like BF3, I notice that the processor is close to 100%, usually between 90% and sometimes going to 100%. I was wondering why Intel Turbo boost never kicks in, it says with turbo boost my cpu can go up to 2.8 ghz, but it always stays at 2.53 whenever I check on the turbo boost monitor

A:Intel Turbo Boost Overclocking Not Working

On tasks that are other than gaming (e.g. web browsing, encoding videos), does your Turbo Boost activate? If so, your CPU temperature is probably hot during gaming, and by design when a certain core temperature is reached during load (around 80-85 deg Celcius for example), Turbo boost deactivates to reduce heat.

I decided to disable Turbo Boost wich wont pass trough 55C under max workload,
whats your opinion on this? im prety sure that anything higher than 70C is crushing CPU eventualy.

A:Intel Mobile i5 Core Turbo Boost Heat

I'm not a laptop person but it looks to me you have 2 choices. Better cooling or leaving Turbo Boost off. 75 C is to hot. Make sure you laptop is in a location where air can get to it. Also they do make separate laptop coolers you can use.

Hello all this's my second post for help on this site, while looking around the net for more unnecessary driver's to disable, I stumbled across something interesting.

The topic relate's to the I/i series processor's and it's turbo boost driver, when reading the thread I noticed one of the commenters saying "Newer I series processors do not need the TB driver, its built into the processor now.", that really piqued my interest, seeing as I use one these I/i series processor's on my laptop and always figured that the Turbo Boost Technology Driver would be a necessary software component to have so my processor would be able to initiate it's "safe overclocking" function that made me decide to purchase a machine with a "I" processor in the first place.

The commenter also claimed that the 2nd Generation i7 series for sure wouldn't need to utilize the driver for turbo boost to work anyway. I just happened to be using one of the second gen i7 processor's and was wondering if I could disable the aforementioned driver and still utilize "turbo boost" as apparently turbo boost was already "Built In" to my processor, and doe's not require Intel(R) Turbo Boost Driver to function, typing this just make's me dubious and confused about the commenters claim, doesn't "Built-In" refer to the driver itself, or was the commenter getting at something else?

Here is the problem I have.

I am a "proud owner" of a DX58SO "Smackover" Intel Motherboard, which so far hasn't disappointed me, but I have some serious issues which are rather annoying.

1. Boot times are slow. Really. I Googled for a solution and I found others have been complaining of this as well. Seems like DX58SO is a notorious slow booter.
2. My Razer Naga mouse never gets detected properly. Who knows why, it's just an issue I am mentioning for others who will find this thread after me. My Razer Anansi Keyboard works fine, though. Do figure.

Now, the main problem I am coming here for is to ask if Windows Ready Boost on Windows 7, which I already use to speed up my Windows will conflict with Intel Turbo Memory, which is supposed to also help speed up boot times. Is it really worth it to use ? How much gain will Intel Turbo Memory give me in regards to boot times ? Anyone got any experience with this ?

Just on a side note, since Razer Support have been very reluctant to answer this question, is plugging my Razer Naga mouse into a Powered USB Port going to hurt its extended functionality, like Macro Recording and Key Mapping ?

I would be very grateful for any input you can give me on these issues.

I'm using a DX58SO with an i920. In the BIOS, everything looking like Turbo Boost and Idle has been enabled to allow for full use of all these features. Yet, if in Windows I use the PerfMon and check C3 Transitions or C3 Time, I get zero. There's a tool called TMonitor which seems to tell me my CPUs (all 4) are running at around 1.6 GHz when idle. The CP frequency seems to increase when I do something, but there are still no C3 Times or Transitions. I'm wondering, is the Turbo Mode not working or is the system even continuously throttle down?

My new DELL desktop came with an Intel i7-2600 CPU @ 3.4 GHz w/ Turbo Boost technology. The specs indicate the CPU speed can go up to 3.8 GHz. I ran a few CPU speed tests and they were disappointing.

I monitor CPU core frequency with ArgusMonitor. When CPU load is at 100% on all 4 cores / 8 threads, I get an extra 0.1 GHz boost on each core (3.5 GHz instead of 3.8 GHz). That is by design, I think; I read somewhere that, if all cores are at top speed then Turbo Boost does not kick in. So I ran a test on one logical CPU. Still not getting 3.8 GHz -- maybe because the OS distributes CPU load over multiple CPUs even when the application only uses one core?

Is there a test that can demonstrate the full Tubo Boost capabability of a CPU? That is, one that results in ArgusMonitor showing at least one core/thread running at 3.8 GHz for a short amount of time? Thanks.

hello. i have an intel core i5 560m clocked at 2.67ghz and up to 3.2ghz turbo... im having a problem where the CPU will NEVER go up to 3.2ghz. no matter what, it moves up to 2.93, and freezes there. i have 3 chrome browsers up with 3 1080 youtube videos playing all onscreen at the same time. cpu usage is up to 98-100% and is at 2.93 ghz. not 3.2!!!! i was rendering 1080p video today, and saving it. cpu was maxed out completely, except frequency. it was stuck at 2.93gh. also no matter what game i play too, it never reaches 3.2ghz...

i uninstalled the driver i orgionally installed, and that dident help at all and computer is on gaming/high performance power plan. any ideas ho to fix this?

A:Help with Turbo Boost

ok i think i figured it out. i ran a .bat search on my computer, and it went up to 3.07-3.2ghz BUT core 2 and thread 4 were Parked. i then ran 2 searches one for .zip and one for .bat, and both core 2 and thread 4 became unparked, and it locked at 2.93ghz. so i guess its dependent on how many active cores there are. is there anyway to change this so max is 3.2 no matter what?

SO THE GTX 1060 TURBO ASUS IS 100 DOLLARS CHEAPER . IT IS 6GB COMPARED TO NORMAL 8GB. WILL THIS AFFECT FPS OR ARE BOTH CARDS SAME.
 

A:What is a turbo boost cpu

If you want to play games at 4k or do a 3 monitor setup then 8 GB of VRAM will be better. Now if you plan on playing at 1080 or 1440 with only 1 monitor 6 GB is enough.

I presently have a desktop PC with the following specifications:

Windows 7 Home premium 64 bit version Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q8300 @ 2.50 GHz, with 6.00GB Installed memory .

I am considering purchasing an Acer Aspire Laptop with the following specifications:

Windows® 7 Home Premium - 64-bit version - 3rd Generation Intel® Core™ i5-3317U Processor (3MB L3 cache, up to 2.6GHz) with Turbo Boost technology - 6GB DDR3 SDRAM - 500GB hard drive.

On further reading of the specifications however, I find the following on the above laptop:

Processor Manufacturer Intel Processor Type Core i5 Processor Modeli5-3317UM Processor Speed 1.70 GHz Processor Core Dual-core (2 Core) Cache3 MB 64-bit Processing.

I am looking for some guidance as to whether this laptop will be as fast as the current desktop I now have and what the difference between a 1.7 GHz processor (with Turbo boost) will be versus the 2.50 GHz processor? I do not use my computer for games but for Word Processing and Spreadsheets as well as web browsing. I also do some video downloading.

I have not been able to find any user reviews on this laptop and I'm wondering if anyone out there has an opinion on this product.

Thanks in advance for any help,

Herc

Hi. I have question about the cpu max/min power state in the power management menu and how this affects turbo boost. What is the lowest min setting I can have before turbo boost is disabled? I know that max has to be at 100% but I heard that the min setting can be set to as low as 90% before it disables turbo boost.

A:CPU Turbo Boost

I have mine set at 5%-100%, and my processor which normally sits at 1.6GHz at idle, rises to 4.2GHz full speed when demand calls. The nominal rated speed for my CPU is 3.4GHz.

Hi.
I have a 7 year old Studio XPS 8000 running on an i7 860 at 2.80 GHz. I have been informed that this CPU has a feature called Turbo Boost which will increase the clock speed to 3.46 GHz when needed. I would like to see the performance benefit when running Flight Simulator. I have checked using CPU-Z, and the clock speed remains at 2.80 GHz when running Flight Simulator. According to my online investigations Turbo Boost is enabled through the BIOS. I have gone into my BIOS, and there is no reference to it at all. My BIOS is Dell Inc. A01 dated 11/08/2009. I am aware that there is a BIOS update available (A03 dated 03/11/2011), but the Dell drivers page states that to use it I need to "download the file and copy it to a DOS-bootable USB flash drive, then boot the system to the USB flash drive and run the program". I have no idea what a DOS-bootable USB flash drive is. Is this imperative, or is it safe for me to run the BIOS update file from my desktop, as various Youtube videos suggest? And of course the important question is whether this BIOS update will give me an option to enable Turbo Boost? Or is there another reason why this feature is not available? In case it is important, my OS is Windows 7 Home 64 bit.
Thanks for your help.
Adrian

A:How to enable Turbo Boost

Your CPU may not support Turbo Boost. Even if it does, if Dell didn't enable TB in BIOS, there's nothing you can do.
There's been only one BIOS update, from A01 to A03, for this system. And the only thing reported for A03 is: Fix intermittent show error message Alert at checkpoint D0 issue.
So if you don't get this error message, there's no point updating to A03.
You can enable Hyper-Treading in BIOS A01, if not already enabled. But HT  may only give you a small improvement, assuming the software you run is coded to use HT.

Bois version 3.2.3 on this 3650 i5 6400 has no option to turn turbo boost on or off. It came with win10 and now is running win7 64. If I am not mistaken this fact should have nothing to do with the option missing so any ideas?

A:I5 6400 turbo boost

If you don't see it listed in BIOS, that option just may not be supported on this model...

Does Turbo Boost work / Enhance Memory performance when you have a SSD Installed in Windows 8.

Finally upgraded to a SSD and was wondering if one of my spare 16 or 8 GB Flash Drives I have laying around would do anything in turbo boost? Currently have 8 GB Ram with a i3 Core Intel Chip in a Samsung Laptop.

A:Turbo Boost in Windows 8.1 with a SSD

I believe you mean ready-boost. An SSD is generally faster than a thumb drive. That fact, and Ready boost isn't much help on a PC with sufficient ram would indicate that you aren't likely to see any performance gains with it. I use it at work with a real fast thumb drive only because my machine only has 4 gigs of ram. Does it help? I still don't notice any gains. Haven't tested or anything.
