What does thiss mean ??....

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi i was looking at the Processor specs on the ASUS G73JW gaming laptop and was wondering what the end bit means of this text that i copied.

--- Processor & Cache Memory Intel® Core™ i7 Processor 740QM : 2.66 GHz - 1.73 GHz, with Turbo Boost up to 3.33/3.06/2.93/2.8 GHz ---

it's a core i7 740QM and as you can see it says turbo boost 3.33/3.06/2.93/2.8 GHz does this mean that it overclocks 1 core @3.33 ghz 2 core's @3.06 ghz & 3 cores @2.93ghz ect...

Thank you for your time

Well I messed up my first post I meant to say that turbo mode will only boost one core up to whatever you set it but when your using all your cores for applications that can use more than 1 core it will stay the same. So if your running a single thread application - 1 core used - that one core will be boosted to which ever speed you set it to.
