Enable Intel Core i7-7700 Turbo Boost for more performance

Here is How to Enable Intel Core i7-7700 Turbo Boost for more performance. Before getting started you should be aware of turbo frequency and overclocking.

What is Intel Core i7-7700 Turbo Boost Technology?

  • Intel Turbo Boost Technology is the feature in Intel’s processors which raises the operating frequency whenever there is high demanding task running.
  • Furthermore, the feature accelerates the frequency of the processor when the operating system demands high performance.
  • The Turbo boost concept can also be called as “Dynamic Overclocking”.
  • This feature is enabled in the processors including Core i5, i7, i9, and XEON processors.

What is Overclocking?

Overclocking is the process of speeding up or increasing the clock speed than official efficiency provided by Manufacturer. In other words, overclocking is the method of configuring the hardware components to obtain extra utility and performance than the default. We have to take many precautions while overclocking your Intel Core i7-7700.

Remember: Overclocking can result in damage 

Overclocking is method triggering main processor or graphics controller, but systems such as RAM are also involved in this process which leads to an increase in power consumption and fan noise. Due to overclocking many manufacturers gives the extra functionality of safety to deal with operating conditions outside the control of manufacturers. The disadvantage of overclocking your Intel processor is overheating and more power usage. Ultimately, heating will result in decreasing the life span of your CPU. Since overclocking is only available to unlocked processors we can only turbo boost our Intel Core i7-7700.

Difference between locked and unlocked processors

  • You might have been noticed about locked and unlocked processors while purchasing
  • Unlocked processors are made with unlocked clock multipliers and are denoted with K
  • These unlocked processors can be overclocked by pairing with a proper chipset while locked processors are not overclockable.
  • Earlier CPU’s were used to sold unlocked but now nearly every Intel CPU’s are locked
  • However, the Intel Core i7-7700 Processor may overclock as every processor has the ability to perform more than safety limits but it will result in bricking.
