Subject: 2.6.31.4+Benchmarks: Core i5/7 - No turbo boost, maximum speed is
 always 2.93 GHz?

Hello,

It looks like turbo boost is never activated...

[   23.322132] freq-table: target is 0 (2927000 kHz, 0)
[   23.322133] cpufreq-core: governor: change or update limits
[   23.322135] cpufreq-core: __cpufreq_governor for CPU 7, event 3
[   23.322137] cpufreq-core: target for CPU 7: 2927000 kHz, relation 1
[   23.322138] freq-table: request for target 2927000 kHz (relation: 1) for cpu 7
[   23.322140] freq-table: target is 0 (2927000 kHz, 0)

I tried setting it manually as well:

cpufreq-set -g ondemand -d 1100000 -u 3600000

# cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu*/cpufreq/*max*

Using the latest Intel BIOS on a DP55KG, I have run multiple tests and all
seem to be within the noise:

Still though, something does not seem right, 2.93 GHz -- if the CPU speed
was really increasing to 3.60 GHz this would be much faster?
