Hi, i'm calling for all the Mac specialists out there. We all know that the most recent Macs have the ''Turbo Boost'' capacity for high CPU usage. How does it work? I've read that it's always there (by default) and that the system will use it only when needed. Is that true? And also, do you think that this ''Boost'' can improve in-game experience in WOT or other games (FPS etc.)

 


 

Thank you

It can, but shouldn't be relied on. You generally won't see the boost active while gaming for the entire time.

Key point:

 

Disabling Turbo Boost hurts performance of CPU-intensive tasks by about a third, but doesn’t significantly slow down lighter tasks. The MacBook Pro also runs noticeably cooler, and gains about 25% more battery life.
