Intel Turbo Boost

Check that Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 is enabled using

$ cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/intel_pstate/no_turbo

An output of 1 means it is not enabled, so you will have to reset your BIOS to defaults. After doing that, running the command again should print 0. You should be able to see your CPU boosting way higher.


With fwupd you can update System Firmware (UEFI). The version available in lvfs is more recent (1.15) than in the BIOS update ISO (1.14).

There are some devices that supports updating, but currently have no available updates in lvfs or lvfs-testing repositories. Probably updates can be extractes from Windows updaters. They are:

  • ELAN0676:00 04F3:3195 - this is a trackpoint
  • Fingerprint Sensor
  • Integrated RGB Camera - there are downloadable windows updaters (Azurewave 1SF54AA: 2252 / Bison BNK919KSE: 5711 / LuxVisions 0SF108N3: 0004 and LuxVisions 1BF208N3: 1024 / Bison BNK5U6VE8: 6717)
  • Intel Management Engine - there is downloadable windows updater ( as of 2023.08.15)
  • UEFI Device Firmware - 12 entries with such name. Probably for nfc, smartcard reader, etc.

Some updates are available out of the box:

  • UEFI revocation list (dbx)
  • Battery
  • Samsung NVMe SSD

And if you enable lvfs-testing, you can also update:

  • Embedded Controller
