Hi,

According to Intel, my CPU (i7-10700) should get to 4.9 Ghz with Intel Turbo Boost 3.0. However, the CPU is only getting up to 4.7 Ghz, when I run performance tests and play games. From what I've read there is nothing special I need to do to configure Turbo Boost 3.0 - Turbo Boost enabled is the only setting in BIOS.

Any idea why I'm not seeing 4.9 Ghz?

I'm using a Z490A - Pro mobo and Windows 10 2004.

Thanks for your help.

On a related note, I tried to configure my cores as discussed in this video.
However, I can only take it up to 4.8 Ghz (the Turbo Boost 2.0 max), not 4.9 Ghz (the Turbo Boost 3.0 max).

Any ideas?

As Forum seems to block url link, could you provide the title of the video so we could search on Youtube?

never mind... There was conflicting information about the i7-10700 specs. Turbo Boost 3.0 max is 4.8 Ghz and did get it to 4.8 earlier today.

That's what I also wonder why you expecting 4.9GHz with that CPU
