Hi,

 

I have a single core intensive application and Laptop is configured with 

i7-8550U CPU.

 

I would like to utilize single core to the maximum of 4.00 GHz as supported by the processor.

 

OS is Win 10 and 16GB RAM.

 

How can I achieve it single core maximum performance of 4.00 GHz for this application on my laptop?

 

Thanks,

~DJ

Hello DJado,

 

Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities.

 

I would like to inform you that it is true that your processor (Intel® Core™ i7-8550U Processor) can support up to 4.00GHz but only at Max Turbo Frequency, and the process is done automatically. 

The operation is dependent on headroom available in one or more cores. The amount of time the system spends in turbo boost mode depends on workload, environment, and platform design.

The processor must be working in the power, temperature, and specification limits of the thermal design power (TDP). This results in increased performance of both single and multithreaded applications. There is no need to install any software or application to support Intel® Turbo Boost Technology.
