Intel® Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0 is a combination of software and hardware that delivers more than 15% better single-threaded performance.1 2 3 Now available on select Intel® Core™ i9 processor Extreme Edition, select Intel® Core™ i7 processor Extreme Edition and with select processors in the Intel® Core™ i processor family.
A New Tool for Optimized Performance
With Intel® Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0, lightly-threaded performance is optimized by identifying your processor's fastest cores and directing your most critical workloads to them.
A Frequency Boost to Get More from Your Processor
Intel® Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0 doesn't replace Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0. It enhances it with a massive frequency boost on your fastest cores for more flexibility to get the best from your processor.2
Factors that Impact Intel® Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0
The availability and frequency upside of Intel® Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0 depends upon a number of factors including, but not limited to, the following:
- Type of workload
- Number of active cores
- Estimated current consumption
- Estimated power consumption
- Processor temperature
- Drive support
Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.04 accelerates processor and graphics performance for peak loads, automatically allowing processor cores to run faster than the rated operating frequency if they're operating below power, current, and temperature specification limits.2 1
Product and Performance Information
Intel® technologies’ features and benefits depend on system configuration and may require enabled hardware, software or service activation. Performance varies depending on system configuration. Check with your system manufacturer or retailer or learn more at www.intel.com/content/www/xa/en/architecture-and-technology/turbo-boost/turbo-boost-max-technology.html.
Benchmark results were obtained prior to implementation of recent software patches and firmware updates intended to address exploits referred to as "Spectre" and "Meltdown". Implementation of these updates may make these results inapplicable to your device or system.
Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel® microprocessors. Performance tests, such as SYSmark* and MobileMark*, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations, and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products.

As measured with SPECint_base2006. SPECint*_base2000/2006 measures how fast a device completes a single integer compute task. SPECint*_rate_base2000/2006 measures throughput, or how many integer compute tasks a device can accomplish in a given amount of time. Comparison made using an Intel® Core™ i7-6950x processor versus an Intel® Core™ i7-5960x processor with otherwise identical system hardware.
Requires a system with Intel® Turbo Boost Technology. Intel® Turbo Boost Technology and Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 are only available on select Intel® processors. Consult your PC manufacturer.
