    Using TurboBoost on Ubuntu with i7 processor

    I am checking my CPU speed by using i7z, but it seems the TurboBoost feature does not work on my computer. I also read:

    How do I get turbo boost working?
    and

    Is Turbo Boost Working?


    But the problem is the same. How can I make sure that TurboBoost is working or not?

    Turboboost is controllable from BIOS right?

    If Ubuntu is going only till 1.6GHz, recheck the BIOS setting or else try upgrading to a newer kernel.
    I guess it may be BIOS related or Kernel related.

    No, unfortunately I cannot control turboboost from BIOS.

    It's going up to 2.2 GHz which is the default max. freq. by my processor. I am using v3.11.0.14 kernel.
