Intel is no longer sharing per-core Turbo frequency details

I touched on it a little bit in the Coffee Lake-S launch post, but as it's a slow news day it's worth repeating this message again in a new post. Intel made some changes recently and is sharing less information with its partners and the press. Specifications that were previously widely shared are now considered proprietary information, this includes not only the number of transistors but also the per-core Turbo frequencies.

As reported by ExtremeTech, the fact that Intel no longer shares multi-core Turbo frequencies is not only pointless but also needlessly makes it a lot harder for users to figure our whether their platforms are configured properly:
This information can still be gathered via manual testing (assuming none of the issues above apply), and testing multiple motherboards would be the simplest way to make certain there are no issues affecting one specific model. Ultimately, Intel’s decision to restrict this information seems pointless. It makes it harder for end-users to determine whether their platforms are configured properly without actually preventing the specific information from being discovered. It’s a lose-lose for everyone, and it’s a policy we hope Intel reconsiders.
Just like the site, we hope Intel will reverse its position.
