AMD will introduce a new technology called ”Turbo CORE” in its new Thuban and Zosma CPUs. By overclocking active CPU cores when running single threaded applications, performance can be increased without an increase in power consumption. This new feature however is hardware-based and as such isn’t supported by today’s CPUs. This is something that ASUS is said to have overcome, using its own Turbo Unlocker technology. This technology gives an increase in performance for the current line of AMD’s Black Edition family of CPUs.
