Turbo clock speed is activated by default and only triggers automatically when needed
This CPU, Intel Core i7 6500U, is suppose to have Turbo clock speed. So far I have not been able to figure out how to get it to work on my Dell Inspiron 17 i5759-7660SLV Signature Edition Laptop. Anybody help me out some, please. Thank you
It's made for laptops
