INFO: What is Turbo Boost 2.0?

Description: This technical article will describe what Turbo Boost 2.0 is and how it works.

  1. The Intel© Turbo Boost Technology offers a short term increase in performance for the processors in the computer. Turbo Boost 2.0 becomes active when the operating system on the computer requests the processors to perform at the highest performance. This will push the processor speed, the power, and temperature for a short period. Turbo Boost will stay active until the operating system cancels the request for this service, or if the computer goes into a power saving mode such as sleep or hibernate.
  2. The Intel© Turbo Boost monitoring software will show when the Turbo Boost is enabled. The dark blue area is the normal speed that which the processors are running. The light blue area indicates the increased speed and performance from Turbo Boost.
