nuc7pjyh maximum cpu frequency


Hi all

I have a new nuc7pjyh. Its Intel J5005 CPU is specified at 1.5GHz / 2.8GHz turbo. In BIOS the maximum CPU frequency is listed as 2.3GHz.

Am I missing something here?

Thanks a lot

Hello rudolffischer,


Thank you for posting in our Intel ® Community.


In this case, as you may know, the default values for the Intel® Pentium® Silver J5005 Processor installed in your Intel® NUC Kit NUC7PJYH go from the Processor Base Frequency (1.50 GHz) up to the Burst Frequency (2.80 GHz).


The burst feature is automatically handled by the Operating System (OS); thus, if this does not report the speed of the CPU moving forward towards the Burst Frequency to the maximum, is because it does not find the need to.


This feature works dynamically, and depending on the task that you are running these values will go up and down, the more resources that you use, the higher the values will go.


In your In addition please run a test with our Intel® Processor Diagnostic Tool, the purpose of the Intel® Processor Diagnostic Tool is to verify the functionality of your Intel® Microprocessor. The diagnostic tool checks for brand identification, verifies the processor operating frequency, tests specific processor features, and performs a stress test on the processor.


I hope this helps.
