AfterDawn: Glossary


TurboCore is a performance feature that is present on some microprocessors made by Advanced Micro Devices (AMD).

Microprocessors based on the code-named Zosma design from AMD feature the TurboCore technology, which can give a performance boost to the system when it is required to do so.

Quad-Core AMD chips with TurboCore can boost the speed of two of four of their cores by about 300-500MHz for single thread performance.
