Intel turbo boost technology monitor 2.6 - Doesnt work

Well it worked when I've tried using it the first time, now it doesnt.

My processor is here :
i7 2630qm

It does support turbo boost, and I have it enabled.
I've uninstalled it and reinstalled, didn't work.

Please can I get a reply.
Nothing remotely related to revo uninstaller please.

Thanks Tom,

My processor can go as far as 2.9ghz with turbo boost enabled, and the Intel turbo boost technology monitor doesn't actually work for me when I use it.

Hi Skillsfury,

What happens when you try and run/install the monitor? Are you given any error codes?

The Intel Turbo Boost technology monitor does what it is says in its name; it just shows you when you're getting a Turbo Boosted frequency. It does not actually let you enable or disable those functions at will, that process is completely automated by the system and your OS, and is dependant on the load on your CPU amongst other things.

From the Intel website:-

The Intel® Turbo Boost Technology Monitor 2.5 is a Microsoft Windows* application that displays processor frequency changes including Intel® Turbo Boost Technology frequencies.


More about Turbo Boost and how It works from the same Intel site:-

I see

But referring to this link Here , It says that

Dynamically increasing performance

Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 is activated when the Operating System (OS) requests the highest processor performance state (P0).

Yes. But my point is that the performance increase happens with or without that Monitor though. (i.e. the Monitor is irrelevant when discussing whether or not the Turbo Boost activates)

That's the whole point of the technology being completely automated and not requiring any additional applications except for your Operating System and the CPU that supports the technology.

Your OS is the one that determines whether it needs the extra boost and then subsequently instructs the CPU to go into that mode, without any other applications' or your intervention.

Intel turbo boost 2.6 not responding

Hi tom982 and solarmystic,

I have a i7 2670QM 2.2GHZ and experiencing the same issue than Skillsfury; i understand it's just a monitor but in my case the blue bar just sits there, it doesn't move at all.

I remember that when i bought my pc it worked but now it doesn't monitor so i'm wondering if it's actually boosting or not.

Any help will be appreciated

try using another CPU monitoring program like CPU-Z and do some heavy processing tasks like Prime95 torture test. If the frequency goes above 2.2 GHz then Turbo Boost works and Intel Turbo Boost Monitor is just broken.
