    There is currently no way to do this on Mac OS X.

    No, it is not simple. That's the reason why Intel wrote a tool for this task.

    I can see the Turbo Boost frequencies in Windows where!? Which application?

    I guess it doesn't. It works fine with the 2012 i5/i7, so it must need an update.

    Btw, the Windows version of this utility has the same problem (no Haswell support).

    i had a windows laptop with a i-core cpu and windows 7 i think it was and it had a tubro boots widget like on the side bar just came turned on, must of been the first time we had turboboost to show it off, i think it was the first time the cpu you had a intergraded GPU.....everytime i did something intense it tubroboosted, i had an i5 think it was 2nd gen might even of been a first gen i-core....
