Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0: What You Need to Know
Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 Download Mac ??? ??? Download > =2ubEAPSo, what I have been reading is that we can't manually change the processors performance. On non-apple products you would changes these setting in the bios. Why are you wanting to use turbo boost? (Shedding some more light on the question may help us give you a better solution.)If minimising power consumption is a primary concern (say, for laptops or in server farms) why would you buy a more expensive, turbo-boostable CPU, and then disable turbo-boosting, when you could buy a cheaper, lower-speed CPU, without the turbo-boosting ability, in the first place?All Intel i5 and i7 processors have hardware sensors, that (when used properly) warn the BIOS or EFI when the CPU is overheating. Given this, a system that keeps itself in turbo-boost mode, despite dangerously high CPU temperatures, sounds like it was written by someone who's incompetent. (I could well be wrong about this and would appreciate feedback if I am.)Intel Power Gadget will allow you to see the current clock cpeed of your CPU and also see the wattage being used. It can be found at -us/articles/intel-power-gadget-20. Just download the Mac version. AFAIK, it's the only software that will show you how much the clock speed varies.
Max Turbo Frequency refers to the maximum single-core processor frequency that can be achieved with Intel Turbo Boost Technology. See www.intel.com/technology/turboboost/ for more information and applicability of this technology.

Other answers mention alternate methods to the basic CLI (Command Line Interface). I like to use Conky to do this. In the example below the Skylake CPU has a regular frequency from 800 MHz to 2600 Mhz. With turbo boost enabled the frequency can jump to 3500 MHz under heavy load.
Now you can see the turbo boost is working by looking at the real-time CPU frequency. In the following screenshot, for example, the base speed of my i5 processor is 2.5GHz, but you can see the turbo boost is kicking in and giving more than 3GHz.
