FAQ for latest BIOS updated 7/7/17
Q: What is "Enhanced Multi-Core Performance Mode"?
A: Intel Turbo Boost 3.0 picks two cores to run at 45x, the rest will run 40x. With EMCP all cores will be boosted to 45x.
Q: Isn't that the same as overclocking?
A: Yes and no. Typically when overclocking users have to sacrifice using P-states. This creates excess heat when idle. EMCP keeps all the power saving features but pushes Turbo 3.0 to all cores when under load.
Q: What about power modes, which should I use when testing?
A: Both balanced and high performance power modes will work with EMCP.
