I noticed in bootcamp windows it will only max to 3.5. I have the 2.7 so it should turbo to 3.7. So I want to check in OSX if its just windows thats not letting it turbo all the way to 3.7.
It will only go to 3.7GHz if the Thermal Design Power of the chip stays within specification. If it goes above that the clockrate and voltage will be reduced until it reaches that maximum TDP.Guys are we getting short changed because I purchased a 2.7Ghz that should boost to 3.7Ghz. But instead it will only boost up to 3.5. Tried both windows and OSX. Can anyone else check what your boosting to and what version you have? Or do I just have a faulty comp? The website says up to 3.7Ghz, so when will it, if ever go that high?
