Intel® Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0
The Intel® Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0 (ITBMT 3.0) grants a different maximum Turbo frequency for individual processor cores.
To enable ITBMT 3.0 the processor exposes individual core capabilities; including diverse maximum turbo frequencies.
An operating system that allows for varied per core frequency capability can then maximize power savings and performance usage by assigning tasks to the faster cores, especially on low core count workloads.
Processors enabled with these capabilities can also allow software (most commonly a driver) to override the maximum per-core Turbo frequency limit and notify the operating system via an interrupt mechanism.
