AMD Turbo Core technology provides faster clock speeds for improved performance of CPU intensive workload make performance enhancing boost possible> AMD turbo boost is frequency boosting technology that allows customers to tap into addition clock speed potential for the processor allowing for maximum clock speed

Working of AMD turbo technology

In most cases the processors operation below the stated TDP the available power between where the CPU is actually running and the stated TDP is called TDP headroom and this is what AMD turbo core technology take advantage of when the performance domains increase and there is TDP headroom available AMD turbo core technology is automatically activated and can increase clock by up to 500mzh across all cores, when half the core are in C6 low power state then the active cores can run at very higher frequency then the all core boost,  when AMD turbo max boost is activated half of the cores are able to boost up to 1GHZ.

AMD’s Turbo CORE technology is actually an overclocking performance-enhancement technology which is supported in “Zosma” and “Thuban” Phenom II processors. In a Turbo CORE-integrated CPU, the processor will automatically do overclocking equal to half of the cores up to 500 MHz, this is when all cores are not needed. This will leave the other half of the cores become idle.

But when a program requires more than half of the cores, the processor will now operate on its normal clock rate enabling all cores. The AMD Turbo CORE technology is a performance-boosting technology that automatically changes from six cores down to three but turbo-charged cores for software that simply require unrefined speed on top of multiple cores. For example in the AMD Phenom™ II X6 1090T CPU, the speed swings from 3.2 GHz on six cores to 3.6 GHz on three cores while it is in Turbo CORE mode. This makes it the fastest AMD processor.
