Turbo BoostA feature in Intel's Core i7 CPUs and certain models of its i5 line. Turbo Boost enables processor cores to run faster if power usage and temperatures are within limits. For example, if one core would benefit by processing faster while the others are idling or running slower, the base frequency of that core can be increased on demand in increments of 133MHz. See Core i7 and Core i5.
