13″ MacBook Pro not getting Intel Turbo Boost full potential, suggestions

Those of you who recently got your hands on a new 13” MacBook Pro would have been preparing yourselves for a speedy service. Instead you probably found that what you were getting was quick but not that quick. There have been reports that the Intel Turbo Boost technology is failing to kick in so its Core i7-2620M processor is not reaching its full potential.

The clocking speeds that this CPU is capable of are 3.4GHz but at the moment the speeds are struggling to reach over 2.7GHz. This news comes from one of a few separate reviews that that featured the new 13“ Apple laptop.

It is thought that safety issues and high temperatures are the reason for this. Reviewers said that the MacBook Pro was reaching temperatures above 90 degrees Celsius, which is why it’s now thought that Apple intentionally disabled the boosting function, to stop components melting while on your lap.

More details can be found in the review at PCPro. What do you think could be the reason these problems are occurring? Let us know your thoughts below.
