Many reviewers and hardware enthusiasts have either migrated to the Intel Core i7 and Core i5 platforms, or are in the process of doing so. Unfortunately, this upgrade is not without its pitfalls for the unwary. When it comes to the Intel Core i7 and Core i5 processors, the biggest pitfall you have to watch out for is the Intel Turbo Boost Technology.
Most of us would have heard of this innocuous-sounding feature. Unfortunately, it is this passing familiarity that causes most of us to virtually forget all about it. Even as seasoned reviewers and hardware enthusiasts, we were once caught with our pants down and we have no doubt that many other reviewers and hardware enthusiasts too would have made similar mistakes. It is even possible that many are still unaware of the problems that Intel Turbo Mode can cause.
