Although the i7 6700HQ CPU is rated to run up to 3.5GHz on Turbo Boost, I don't ever see it go over 3.2GHz. Is that normal for the XPS 15 9550? What do others see? Is the max speed limited by the BIOS (on version 1.2.0 A6)?
Thank you for your message.
· 3.50 GHz is the max frequency of this processor and the base frequency being 2.60 GHz
· This will not reach the max speed if the device is over - heating up, this is a security measure
· This will not turbo if it is NOT plugged in
· Will not turbo if there is any power saving mode enabled in bios or OS
· Turbo speed is variable, it will hit the max turbo only on a single core
