    Phoronix: Unified Linux CPU Boost Support Still Being Worked On

    Kernel developers are still working on CPU Boost mode support for the Linux kernel's cpufreq to unify hardware and software-based solutions for CPU overclocking...

      Samsung is cheating

      Interesting to see Samsung involved in CPU boosting since they're using it to cheat in benchmarks.

      When it detects that a benchmark is running it overclocks the CPU.

        Read the article.

              software manager?

              why software manager? i think new intel cpu the turbo is controlling by hardware
