    I keep seeing on sites that the rMBP can be turbo-boosted an extra 1ghz per core (2.3ghz can be turbo-boosted to 3.3 ghz). My question is.... how?

    There is no need for the computer to boost when it's idle; more than likely it will enter a low power state when idle to save battery power.

    The boost is all done in the background without user intervention.

    From most of your threads, I find you're worrying too much about the small things. Do what you need to do, and don't worry about the small details. The processor will "turbo boost" when it needs to. If you mess about with the boost you will find your battery life significantly shortened and your computer running very hot constantly (and probably with the fans going off at full blast).
