    Question Intel Turbo Boost Technology - Is it enabled by default?

    So, the question is, is it Intel Turbo Boost Technology enabled by default in every laptop? I have Asus G75VW T1031V laptop and BIOS updated to v223, I'm not sure where it's located in my BIOS or do I need Turbo Boost gadget for this if I want to use Turbo Boost?

    You just need the gadget to watch Turbo Boost which is incorporated into the processor itself. You might also have to enable Turbo Boost in the BIOS.

    I downloaded HWInfo and it showed that my processor went all the way to 3.2GHz, so I think Intel Turbo Boost Technology workscorrectly.
