Does Insyde H2O not have a BIOS update or ability to enable EIST or Turbo Boost or anything of the sort?
If so, again, WHY INCLUDE THE PROCESSOR IF THE MOTHERBOARD/BIOS CANNOT SUPPORT IT??
Is this the reason why lenovo IdeaPad Y570 (08622KU) was not being sold anymore on any websites?
Another tech support on the phone said that I probably needed Windows 64bit Professional instead of Home Premium, which would do no difference, and he mentioned on the BIOS if there was a tab titled "Intel Pro" and I do not something there.
Help lenovo staff, as this is a product that you have marketed from your company that is falsely advertising

How do I escalate this problem? As I have had enough.
The tech support said that the Motherboard is Lenovo's own and it has no capability of being enabled via BIOS. Only through Intel supported Motherboards
Do I escalate
To Research & Development?
As this laptop or any laptop that contains a lenovo made motherboard should not include in any description that it has turbo boost. As the Tech support says that Lenovo's motherboards has no capability to enable Turbo Boost
Please respond someone from Lenovo's staff and escalate this to R&D ASAP

I used CPU-Z freeware to produce the following screenshots... core speed clock frequencies... to show "TurboBoost" working:
pic 1... CPU at idle
I used 7-Zip file archiver freeware to stress the CPU, under Tools do select 'Benchmark', let it run a minute.
since I've a different Model Laptop (Y560p) than you, my suggestions may miss the point somewhat...
but who knows, may be of some help?

I dont know why but mine only shows 2 cores 4 threads active, why is this??
Note that the energy management is running on High performance with everything turned up.
This is when it is running idle
This is when it is running The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on High Settings
And this is the motherboard tab

I feel like the problem can be traced back to the laptop's cooling design, or a lack of. When gaming, the heat produced by the CPU/GPU is way too high for the inferior cooling system to handle - so there is no way the CPU could run at faster speeds, if anything, it is downclocked. You should check your temperatures while gaming. Mine max out at 100 which causes my CPU to downclock.
From what I heard, the CPU/GPU share the same fan which is a huge design flaw.

there definitely are 4 cores in i7-2630QM CPU... Task Manager even shows 8 threads!
in your setup something's totally tousled...
go start>run... type msconfig>Boot tab>Advanced options... see that Number of processors is UN-checked.
I suggest you use 7-Zip Benchmark to stress CPU, btw its the best Zip/Un-Zip utility anyways.
