On dual-core processors, Turbo Core is activated only when the second core is idle. Try to run single-threaded program, like SuperPi, while watching CPU-z.
OK. Thank you for the great information. I will look more into the Radeon graphics and see what more I may find. As for the processor portion, here are my findings.
I ran SuperPi together with CPU-z and ran the 32M test on SuperPi (without knowing the standard for this test was 1M...lol) and while it was running, every once in a GREAT WHILE, intermittently, the clock speed would jump to 2495-2557 (once for a brief second it even jumped to 3845 but it was only once) but for the most part stayed around 1897-1917. This test took me 33 minutes and 27 seconds...lol. Then I ran the 1M test 3 different times and each time I ran it, the clock speed stayed right around the 2495-2557 range. My time for this test was 34 seconds. I then monitored CPU-z without SuperPi running and it stayed at the 1897-1917 range.
