I am using an Intel i3 Processor, which isn't super new. I was wandering around my BIOS looking for the boot priority settings so I could set my hard disk to boot first (I never did find that, all I could find was a place to disable booting my CD ROM disk drive, USB ports, etc, which isn't really what I wanted. If someone can help me out with that, that would be nice too...) when I noticed something called Turbo Mode. I obviously didn't want to disable it just based on the name, but I was curious as to what it actually did for my computer.

So naturally I look it up on the internet, and it alters the processing speed during more difficult tasks to increase performance and whatnot. That's the less important part. The more important part is that I keep seeing everywhere that i3 Processors are not supposed to have this feature, yet mine does, apparently. Now, I'm not complaining, of course, I'm just wondering how on earth this could have happened?

Possible explanations? Please?

It's there because your motherboard supports other processors that can use TurboBoost, even if yours doesn't. So even if you set it so that it's enabled, your processor won't do anything about it.

Thank you! I'm kind of a noob at hardware-related things, unfortunately, and only slightly more experienced at other things. But I have been doing a lot of exploring lately, and questions like these are the result. Good to know! Haha, thank you again!
