INTEL Turbooooo Boost?

Oversimplifying badly, Turbo Boost will transfer spare MHz from cores that aren't using it to cores that need it. This works better in quad core processors than dual. As you approach 100% loading on all cores, expect the frequency to drop toward stock value.So it only useful when an application is single threaded and demands for more processing power.Note at not all the cores are turbo boost at a titime.

Another way to look at it is an automated overclocking system, within certain limits. Exactly what those limits are, Intel doesn't make too public, but they do describe the technology in general.
