Hey guys,
Just wondering if every model of the G74SX has Turbo Boost; I found this on Amazon where it doesn't explicitly say it has Turbo Boost, and just wanted clarification that this will come with TB as this is the model I want:

Thanks for your help guys!

The CPU has turbo, its automatic. But the notebook doesnt have have button for it or anything.

Think of it as more of a power saving feature than an overclocking feature. ;p

As long as the notebook got the processor i5 or i7 you don't have to worry.

Intel Turbo Boost Technology is in the CPU and provides an extra boost of performance when and where you need it. :)

Was also wondering; a G74SX will definitely have the GTX 560M right? Because the Amazon page says its a GT520, so just want to make sure I have the 560?

Hmm..... since it says that in the specification I would contacted Amazon to hear if they have typed wrong information on the notebook.

As I understand from this site (http://rog.asus.com/notebook/17-inch/g74sx/) is that the VRAM could be 3/2GB but not GT520, thats a huge draw back from GTX 560M.
