Hello HugoValkenburg,

Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities.  

I would like to inform you that the Operating system has a native support for the Intel Turbo Boost Max 2.0 when using Windows 10 * (version equal or greater than 1803).

The operating system supports the Intel® Turbo® Boost Max 2.0 so this feature still working and the computer can still benefit from Intel® Turbo® Boost technology.

That being said, I would like to share with you some steps the message:

Go to Windows Control Panel > Programs > Uninstall a Program, and uninstall the Intel® Turbo Boost Max Technology 2.0 software.

  1. Open device manager.
  2. Click in the System devices.
  3. Right click on Intel® Turbo Boost Max Technology 2.0 Driver.
  4. Click in properties.
  5. Go to the driver tab and click uninstall.
  6. Make sure to select the option to Delete the driver software for this device.
  7. Check if the message is gone.

As an alternate solution uncheck the “Enable” button in the ITBM User Interface.

See the steps below:

  1. Go to system tray in your system.
  2. Right click on the Intel Turbo Boost Max Technology icon.
  3. Click "Disable"
  4. No need to reboot.

I hope this helps to answer your concern.
