Hi, I try to plug via Thunderboalt cable an interface UAD Apollo X4 . But it is required to work perfectly to turn off the "Intel speedstep Technology" But I didn't find it inside the Bios.
It would be really nice if you can explain me how to disable it?
Thanks for your time, have a great day
- You may disable the Intel SpeedStep Technology in Advanced > Power > Primary Power Settings.
- Uncheck the Max Performance Enabled and the Intel Dynamic Power Technology and Processor Power Efficiency will appear.
- Set the Intel Dynamic Power Technology to Custom. The Intel SpeedStep Technology (and additional questions) will appear.
- Now you can uncheck Intel SpeedStep Technology.
- FYI, setting Intel Dynamic Power Technology to OFF, disables both - Intel SpeedStep Technology and Intel TurboBoost Technology.
Thanks a lot for your clear response. But I still have the same issue even with Intel SpeedStep Technology turned off.
UAD ask me to run my PC trough the software HWiNFO64.exe to analyse my PC and they confirm me that Intel SpeedStep Technology is still on.
But I find it in the Bios as you can see on the picture below and I turned it off.
Now I am even more confused there is an other hidden option to turn off?
Tanks for your help
- In the setting shown on your Bios image, setting Intel Dynamic Power Technology to OFF, disables both - Intel SpeedStep Technology and Intel TurboBoost Technology. As far I know, there are no other settings hidden, except the mentioned in my post above.
- Are sure about the HWiNFO64.exe indication? It is indicating the actual status of Intel SpeedStep Technology or the support for this function?
Hi @GRosa7 ,
- I've performed this test on NUC8i7HVK (I don't have NUC8i7BEH). Disabling the function Intel SpeedStep Technology worked as expected. Please see the attached images. One image you may see that after switching the Intel Dynamic Power Technology to OFF, the Intel SpeedStep Technology and Intel TurboBoost Technology are disabled. On the second image you may see that both functions are enabled. However after switching the Intel Dynamic Power Technology to OFF, I needed to enable the Intel TurboBoost Technology manually.
- How I did this: First I've set the Intel Dynamic Power Technology to Custom. Next, I've unchecked Intel SpeedStep Technology. Finally, I've set the Intel Dynamic Power Technology to OFF, although it probably wasn't necessary.
