turbo core not working on AMD A10 4600M ??

post #1 of 40
Thread Starter 
I have a gaming laptop with a AMD A10 4600M CPU,

OS is windows 7 64
RAM 8GB
OCZ SSD


my problem is i don't think turbo-core is working at all, i have been monitoring the CPU and i have never seen it reach 3.2ghz its allays at 2.7GHZ Evan in games its at 2.7GHZ.

is it me or is there something wrong here. one more thing eco mode is off.



very tired at the min so i am sorry about the spelling.

I take it you've enabled everything properly in the Bios? If so perhaps windows oc settings downclocking your system.

By the way, you shouldnt rely in just one testing software. Try prime95. The thing about turbo is that only two cores will run at higher speed when not all cores are required. Kind of having less users taking up your bandwidth.

Nigel according to AMD the A10 4600 goes to turbo automatically if needed.

but surely you'd see turbo core working with cpu-z , you can just use just one core but still its the same. 2.7GHZ all the time.
most be be me, but when i had an intel with q720m that had ( intels turbo core) you cloud see it working.

Gonna reach out to my amd buddy for further reference to this matter.

As of now he suggests, if your laptop supports it, turn your CoolNQuiet setting off. That chip won't run turbo speeds with it on.

Okay, a few things. If its a 'gaming' laptop, you should be able to adjust bios. AMD chips and boards come OEM with Cool'n'Quiet enabled, which stages down the chip when not being used to any real degree. CPUZ does not put your system under enough of a load to cause the chip to ramp up. I had the same issue you are describing until I turned off CnQ.

are you in the balanced power profile?
if it's set to high performance turbo runs at 50%

the BIOS on this laptop is very basic there is not much you can play with, and there is no cool and quite in the BIOS
the power settings in windows is set to High Performance, i cant think of anything else to check.

Have you tried running a different software? Amd turbo cpus won't show a turbo unless they need it. Cpuz doesn't show a turbo clock because it is not enough of a demand to force the cpu to ramp up.
