From: http://www.intel.com/support/processors/sb/cs-031038.htm

Intel® Turbo Boost Monitor is a Windows* 7 application designed to display processor frequency activity and highlight energy saver mode. The Turbo Boost Monitor only runs on PCs with Intel® Turbo™ Boost Technology capable processors. No Intel® Turbo Boost Monitor 2.0 is available in download center as the latest version works backward compatible with Intel® previous Generation Turbo™ Boost Technology capable processors.
