Intel® Turbo Boost Technology Support

Intel® Turbo Boost Technology applies to CPU cores and to the Intel Graphics device. The Intel Graphics and the CPU must run within the thermal constraints of the system. Thus, either the CPU or the Intel Graphics might boost or throttle the frequency as needed.
Refer to the Intel® Turbo Boost Technology website for the list of Intel processors that support the technology.
Frequency change on one device impacts the other. Too intensive application polling (such as looping on some flag waiting for the Intel Graphics to complete the job) can cause an increase in CPU frequency, which can negatively impact the Intel Graphics performance.

Product and Performance Information


Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
