Motor Boating AVID Reference ! Ummmmmmm

Just tweaking the z800 bios and found:
Z800 Optional system BIOS change:
1. Set Intel Turbo Boost Technology**– Disable**
 
Only required  if connecting USB audio I/O devices. This setting will eliminate any audio
“motor-boating” or audio “popping” which may be experienced with USB audio I/O devices.
 
http://resources.avid.com/supportfiles/attach/AVIDHPZ800ConfigguideRevB.pdf  Look at page 7
 
To me that means that USB Audio Devices are responsible for Motor Boating or Audio Popping ? So WHAT  PCIe or firewire are guaranteed not to ! Interesting as to why they would make such a statement ! Anyone care to comment
 
Maybee i am understanding it incorrectly !

It clearly states In the second linked article that the issue might be caused when the Intel Turbo boost Technology was used, on that particular PC when using a USB interface with that particular Avid video software.

I think you are not understanding correctly.

Misunderstood gotcha , I guess it leans towards this particular PC using FireWire or PCIe if I want that option enabled in the bios !with that particular AVID software !
Can I say that because platinum is so awesome you can leave it enabled with this PC z800 , because platinum has a AUD.ini file called DropoutMsec which takes care of motor boating and then enjoys the benefits of intel turbo boost technology .

Thanks cakewalk

C states (power saving) and turbo boost ("on-demand" overclocking) manipulate processor on the fly (frequency). It is long time known that such manipulations can be hard to deal with in real time / timer dependent (audio/video) applications. So general recommendation always was "disable power saving, put the system into 'performance' mode". Turbo Boost is a "standard" over-clocking now, but it is still over-clocking. So I think some particular systems, with particular components and software can have problems with that, I mean that can be expected.

Optimizing my current daw 2010 I turned off C-states(coreparking kind of) and dynamic overclocking(that a core overclocks before feeling need starting a new core).
 
This made PC overall more calm and collected with cpu load.
Smooth spread of load over cores since no restrictions applied.
Never touched it since.
