Turbo boost is Intel technology. I don't think AMD has something like this, but in Intel processors, it over clocks by itself. You don't have to do anything, if using Intel.

It is automatic depending on CPU load. I don't think that there is anything you can finagle - at least I never heard of that. The only option would be to overclock the CPU. But that is risky and you need the right board and a lot of experience.

Some AMD chips have a Turbo mode. My FX 8350 does, though I don't know about the A series.

As far as I know it's automatic as long as the BIOS options are set to auto clock the CPU, and I think cool and quiet has to be turned off (I could be wrong on that one, I set mine off because I don't like it).

The easiest way to tell is to load CPU-Z and load the PC. The multiplier and CPU speed should jump around.

Edit: I just checked and that CPU does have a Turbo mode. It should be automatic.

Indeed; i concur with the others. I know mine has turbo as mine is a intel processor. I dont believe that can be done with amd boards unless it can be done with the turbo mode as mentioned by one of the others above.

A series does...Mines is 1.5ghz stock but ive oc'd to 2ghz with a turbo of 2.7ghz. OC in the catalyst and watch your temps. Use Core temp to monitor and see whats happening in terms of heat and core frequency, mines turbo'd to 2.7ghz when i got it, all i did was oc.

Most AMD cpu's have turbo mode. It is controlled in BIOS. Lap tops may not have it enabled because of the heat.

Funny, I don't think my BIOS has the turbo setting. It is just enabled automatically. I'll have to check.

EDIT: Yup, it does have the setting right in the BIOS. I'm surprised that I didn't remember that.

It should be done by the processor. I don't think the BIOS has to do anything. And I think laptops do have it. http://ark.intel.com/m/products/7511...specifications
