    I was under the impression at least for SB and IVB and Haskell, the Intel pstate driver in kernels 3.9+ handle the turbo frequencies.

    They answer this question close to the beginning.
    Short answer: yes, they are attempting to create a common interface for "all" cpu turbo/boost schemes.

    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.
