With amd and intel having both added turbo with the last gen I thought that I would explain how amd turbo works.
To start, amd turbo works on all amd cpu’s that end in T with the parts ending in 0T having turbo go up to 2x extra (except black edition, but we will get to that later) and the ones with a 5T getting 2.5x. So if u have a 1055T then its a 2.8ghz cpu with a multi of 14x and turbo taking it to 16.5x and 3.3ghz, the 1090T is 3.2ghz with a multi 16x and turbo to 18x and 3.6ghz. Amd also by default puts half the cores in p-state 4 (so a multi of 4 or the minimum that cool and quiet will allow for that cpu) and takes the cores that are being used to pstate0 with the max multi and raises the voltage to what it was +0.1V, this makes the cpu retain the same TDP (thermal design power, aka max power usage with amd, TDP can mean other things with intel.) But if u have amd overdrive then u can set custom values and change the number of used cores to one less than the number the chip has, so a quad can use 3 and a hex can use 5 with turbo, u can also adjust the voltage in turbo mode and set cores to raise individually to lower or with a black edition higher.
And now for what it does to super pi…
The benchmark is with a stock Phenom II X6 1090T, RAM @ 1333MHz.
