But boost only scales up from the top clock speed to above the top speed it cant scale down or at least it can't on older generations of processor.

Intel says (same Turbo Boost 2.0 page):

    Maximum turbo frequency indicates the highest possible frequency
    achievable when conditions allow the processor to enter turbo
    mode. Intel® Turbo Boost Technology frequency varies depending
    on workload, hardware, software, and overall system configuration.

This, max. I took to be 1801 (on mine), so if it is scaled, then the
CPU has to be operating at a lower freq. (Presumably not from 1800!)

But, maybe, MHz xxx1 != Turbo Boost mode. I'm very confused now :)
