Turbo Core Ratio & Gaming

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Since most of my games are single core optimized

is it better to set all turbo core ratio at the same multiplier or have one core higher than the rest?

You can make one core a higher speed than the rest? This is relevant to my interests. Please explain.

Turbo boost is Intel, Turbo Core is AMD. Correct?

You have completely confused me.....

You can set Sandy and Ivy chips to overclock higher when only one core is loaded (just like it does without overclocking) in the BIOS. It depends how the BIOS is set up, but normally there is the option to set the same speed for all cores (Asus calls it "By All Cores") or individually. I don't know if you can get any higher overclock speeds by using the individual core method though - I don't know that I've heard of anyone really trying it. Makes it a lot harder to test, because if you set it to 5.0 for a single core load, then you'd kind of have to test it with each separate core (somehow) to make sure they could all do 5.0.

For most people just setting it to use all the cores is the right answer.

Intel Turbo boost, but in the motherboard uefi/bios each core can be turbo boosted individually per core ratio.

On my 3570K I was thinking of doing
Core1: 44
Core2: 38
Core3: 34
Core4: 34

Since most of my games are single thread optimized they would really use one core.

If I set one core to be turbo boosted high will the game thread automatically use Core1 or am I better of with all core @44? I'm assuming having one core turbo boosted would be lower temps and power consumption than all cores?
