    I was not sure about where to post this blonde question, so I'll just try here..

    I have always known my processor is a i5 2,4ghz (2,53 w/turbo boost), but lately with this autumns game releases I have starter wondering if I am currently taking advance of that boost or not. Do I need to do anything to activate this in any kind of way or will it simply kick in whenever I am running ressource hungry applications?

    How is IntelĀ® Turbo Boost Technology enabled or disabled?
    Intel Turbo Boost Technology is usually enabled by default by a switch in the bios where you can either enable or disable operation. Other than this, there are no user controllable settings to change Intel Turbo Boost Technology operation either in the hardware settings or operating system. Once enabled, Intel Turbo Boost Technology works automatically under operating system control.


    Thanks :)
