It's Turbo Boost mode, which mostly says that the CPU runs at xxx0 MHz
but may increase that as long as the thermal limits aren't reached.
You use it as an additional ACPI p-state with an unspecified frequency.

Newer CPUs learned how to do this per core and it's no longer exposed as
a p-state. Power management is mostly done with c-states instead
(and NetBSD hardly supports that except for using C1/C1E when idle).
