Intel Sandy Bridge to feature Turbo Boost 2.0

Posted on Tuesday, August 24 2010 @ 14:47:04 CEST by

Intel's upcoming Sandy Bridge will feature a more advanced Turbo Boost feature, FUD Zilla claims Turbo Boost 2.0 will now also take the graphics core in its power sharing algorithm:
Now it’s time for a revamp and Turbo Boost 2.0 should deliver a few more features and even more performance to upcoming Intel parts. The concept remains the same, the CPU will be able to throttle certain cores depending on the load. However, with Sandy Bridge Intel has incorporated the graphics core in its power sharing algorithm. This means that the graphics core will clock independently from the CPU cores depending on system demands. As with regular Turbo Boost, this will work as long as there is thermal headroom for higher clocks.

Intel claims Turbo Boost 2.0 will deliver more performance and more energy efficiency than its predecessor. It will incorporate new power averaging algorithms that should enable lower energy consumption and, more importantly, make more thermal headroom for overclocking.
