    AVX core and turbo frequencies


      Intel E5 v3 processors shift the cpu frequency from the normal frequency range to a lower, "AVX" frequency range when executing AVX instructions. Documentation for this can be found here: http://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/specification-updates/xeon-e5-v3-spec-update.pdf


      Do other Intel processors also have an AVX base frequency that is lower than the normal processor base frequency? Specifically, do any of the i7 processors?
