On the other hand, from there I found this description (I selected my
and as explanation for Intel Turbo Boost Technology it has

    Intel Turbo Boost Technology dynamically increases the processor's
    frequency as needed by taking advantage of thermal and power headroom to
    give you a burst of speed when you need it, and increased energy
    efficiency when you don't.

I haven't seen a listing of something named Speed Shift or similar yet.
But from this one would think that it can both increase and decrease
frequency and power.
