how to push into the turbo of the proc?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
hello ocn,
i am wondering how i can check if the turbo works for proccesors.
for example check my sig rig i have a 1100t and in the bios it says turbo enabled to 3.7
but when i turn on prime in combo with cpuz it doesnt turn up to 3.7 ghz.
im wondering this as i builded a fx8120 for my father in law wich also has turbo, imo its way worse then my 1100t system in speed terms.
now i have readed that with some bios version the proc get lower speeds on the fx proc(it has the latest scheduler patches)
so now i wanna try and see if the fx uses its turbo or that i need to play with the system to get some more speed:D
thanks in advance for any tips about this

Prime will utilize all the cores. Turbo only works for 3 of your 6 cores. So with six cores loaded it will not be used.

Turbo Core

The T in the model number indicates the product supports Turbo Core. AMD's Phenom II X6 series is equipped with a Turbo feature much like Intel's Core i5/7 series has. Turbo Core will be able to increase the operational frequencies of three active cores by up to 500MHz (depending on the processor) if an application can't use all six cores.

All monitoring and clock/voltage management is exclusively handled by the CPU, so this is not a quick software fix. Turbo Core is triggered based on operating conditions and application load demand. When power consumption is below the CPU's TDP, the technology puts the three used cores in a boost-enabled P-state.

This means that, should the application demand it, those cores will be able to increase their clocks by an amount dependent on the processing workload. This approach has more than one advantage. Since cores don't need to operate at the same frequency, each will only be pushed higher if the application demands it. As such, no extra power will be spent on unnecessary overclocking.
