Intel Turbo Boost technology is implemented in the Systems with 3rd generation core processors (i5 & i7). If the processor is operating at a lower power, current and temperature limits specified, the Intel Turbo Boost Technology allows the processor cores to run at a higher rate than the specified frequency limit.

Intel Turbo Boost technology is initiated when the operating system requests extreme performance from the Processor. The maximum frequency attained by using this technology is dependent on the number of cores in operation. The duration for which Intel Turbo Boost is active is determined by the factors such as the amount of work and the functioning environment. However, the threshold is dependent upon the features such as the number of cores in operation, current ingestion, power depletion and the temperature at which the processor is functioning. If the processor is functioning well within the limits and the user demands more capability to perform surplus work, the frequency at which the processor is functioning will be incremented animatedly until the specified threshold is realized.

Intel Turbo Boost has numerous processes working simultaneously to administer the parameters of the processor like power, temperature, current ingestion to provide extreme functioning and efficacy in power consumption. The processor is operated in short burst at threshold to provide the extreme functioning capability.

The Intel Turbo Boost Technology gives more performance on systems with fourth generation Intel Core processor. With Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0, it automatically lets processor cores run faster than what is specified in the TDP or Thermal Design Power frequency. This is possible if it is running below power and temperature limits.

The added boost in performance is operating system-dependent. When your operating system needs the maximum processor performance state or PO, this is the only time Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 is activated. The maximum frequency depends on the number of active cores. The duration of the processor spent in the Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 condition all depends on the operating environment and the amount of workload.

Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 has numerous algorithms working in parallel to handle current, temperature, and power to amplify performance and use energy effectively. You can also download Intel Turbo Boost Technology Monitor, a program designed for Microsoft Windows that displays processor frequency changes as well as Intel Boost Technology frequencies.
