This feature will be reached when need it, there is no option to turn it on or off. The maximum turbo frequency indicates the highest possible frequency achievable when conditions allow the processor to enter turbo mode. Intel® Turbo Boost Technology frequency varies depending on workload, hardware, software, and overall system configuration.
Due to varying power characteristics, some parts with Intel® Turbo Boost Technology may not achieve maximum turbo frequencies when running heavy workloads and using multiple cores concurrently.
Availability and frequency upside of Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 state depends upon a number of factors including, but not limited to, the following:
- Type of workload
- Number of active cores
- Estimated current consumption
- Estimated power consumption
- Processor temperature

Thank you for your response! I have a few questions though:
1) It seems as though my processor never exceeds the 2.4 GHz limit, in any situation. Perhaps you have a tool I could use to try and force turbo mode to activate?
2) My processor doesn't even claim to have a turbo mode any more - before, on the page I linked earlier, it stated that the processor could reach 2.4GHz 3.4 GHz. Now, as I highlighted in the image, it says 2.4 and 2.4. Furthermore, I believe the task manager used to point out that the processor has a max of 3.3 GHz, but now it says 2.4 is the max.
So it seems like there's more to the problem than this - thoughts?
- There is a tool to track the max Turbo Frequency, but it is out of support and can only be found on third party webpages. See here for it Intel® Turbo Boost Technology Monitor FAQ and Intel Turbo Boost Technology Monitor 2.6 Download - TechSpot**
- Make sure that the feature is enabled in your BIOS configuration, I would recommend checking with your computer manufacturer in order to double check if it is on or off.
