I admit I don't understand your comment 100%. But let me comment on some things I read yesterday trying to help others.
Basically said that while desktop CPU's do have Turbo boost you are looking at about 18% boost. On some of the mobiles 72% boost. These are not my words or thoughts but? Because desktops do not suffer from the same thermal restrictions they are designed to do less. The article went further that server models of i7 Turbo would be less or non existent.
That did cause me thought. And the last of what I just said was just Parroting what I read.
Having said that I find reading what you wrote to be at odds? And that confuses me.
I could say more but at this time I can't link so no point. The gist was the mobile 2Ghz that can Turbo to 3.2Ghz is really a 3.2Ghz that has been designed to manage heat such that it downclocks to maintain a thermal envelope? I find it ironic that turbo boost is actually a downclocking scheme. Do not get me wrong I do understand. It does explain why not so important in desktops.
Anyway we all are still learning and I am just throwing out things I have read. Feel free to come back at me as I am not even pretending I understand it.
