    G75VW Turbo Boost

    I recently purchased a G75VW-DS71 and it does not seem to have turbo boost. Every thing I have read online and otherwise says that it has turbo boost however it doesn't have it. I use CPU-Z and it doesn't show that I have turbo boost. Also my CPU gadget doesn't say that I have turbo boost. I noticed that there is a turbo boost utility download on the Asus website. Do I have to download it and run it or what?

    You should see turbo boost (CPU running at higher frequency) in CPU-Z when you run the Prime95 stress test in the High Performace power profile.

    Intel Turbo Boost Technology Monitor v1.0.400.4

    Thats the best one from ASUS that works right


    Dont download the later 2.xx versions as those stay in your task bar all the time not only a gadget and if u close it from the task bar the gadget goes away

    the one I posted above is only the gadget so you can see when your CPU goes up to full speed during high CPU demand or when launching apps

    Thanks. From what i understand Turboboost is a passive function that is hardwired into the i7 processors right? So its not something u turn on or turn off, it automatically adapts to usage and temperature.
    So really the Turbo boost monitor is just for monitoring correct? just wanna make sure

    you are absoultely right

    Just ensure you have the latest Intel Chipset Drivers installed as they gave me better Turbo Boost Speeds where I am reaching to 3.27 GHz. now!!

    Intel Chipset Drivers v9.3.0.1021

    Here's what is going on

    Hi, I tried all of the things that were told to me. I got the turbo boost gadget, I am running cpu-z and a even tried prime95. Nothing seems to kick in the turbo boost. Even in my bios it says nothing about turbo boostClick image for larger version.

ID:	10347[ATTACH=CONFIG]10348 As you can see from the pictures all of my cores are running at 100% well under the temperature range for turbo boost to work. I have no idea why turbo boost isn't engaging. As it seems I am literally the only one with this problem.

    Run HWiNFO64 (www.hwinfo.com) and check the lower left of the Summary page. This will show the freq that each of the cores are running. They should be changing as the CPU processing changes.

    It works!

    It finally showed up. The HWiNFO64 showed that my processor cores were being boosted but the gadget showing the boost would never work. Finally I ran the program from Asus's downloads page for the G75 and it worked. Thank you all for your help.
