Default Asus Turbo Unlocker

So I was watching NCIX Tech Tips and Linus was demonstrating the so called "Turbo Unlocker" feature on a ASUS P7P55D-E Premium. I was immediately interested and thought to myself, "Hey, that's a practically useful feature."

Does anyone know more about this Turbo Unlocker? Do other Asus boards have it or is it only for the P7P55D-E Premium? Do other manufacturers have a similar feature?

It's on the Crosshair IV, but I haven't played with it.

Default turbo unlocker

I have this function on my m4a88td evo, and it rocks! As an OC nube i used the auto tune function in the Bios, which gave me 3.8ghz from my 3.3 Phenom 2 x6 1100t. This scored 7.5 in the W7 rating. Hitting the turbo unlocker gave an extra 0.1. I notice the difference when loading programs too. The gskill 1600 ram is also pretty fookin amazing...

I have the M5A99X evo board and I love the Tubo windows software. You can easily adjust all your setting right in windows for instant changes.

I am running my 1090T @ 4 Ghz simply by adjusting the CPU Ratio and upping the CPU voltage slightly. Very stable, very easy to use. I am not sure why however, the senor array is indicating my PS fan RPM is at 0 though.

non load temps with the Venomous X RT are 31C and under full load up to 63C after 2 hours.
