Quick CPU (formerly known as Core Parking Manager v3) is a small program of the system performance optimization designed to fine-tune and track CPU output, power, and voltage settings such as Core Parking, Frequency Scaling, Turbo Boost, C-States, Speed Shift, and FIVR Control, among other things. All of the details on how it operates, how to view program data and parameters, and how to make these changes are given below.
Back in the day, most computers were desktop machines, with the hardware’s main purpose being to have the very maximum performance, and there was no particular need for technology like SpeedStep, Turbo Boost, and so on.
If your device has an Intel CPU code name Skylake or higher with HWP (Intel Speed Shift) supported by default, please see the link below to learn more about the performance adjustments and variations. Performance optimization for HWP (Intel SpeedShift)-enabled devices.
The design of this application allows you to monitor the number of CPU cores that need to be enabled or disabled (or you can actually activate all the cores at all times, see examples of how it functions below) depending on your personal requirements; however, you can now say if a specific core is enabled or disabled by looking at the CPU graph. This knowledge is also available under “Enabled cores” and “Parked cores” on the CPU output page. Since this is real-time information, you do not need to press the “Refresh” button to see the latest update.
CPU frequency scaling is a function that allows the operating system to scale the CPU frequency up or down in order to try to balance supply and demand, providing CPU output as needed or saving energy when possible. Similarly to Core Parking OS, it attempts to dynamically scale CPU frequency depending on processor load. This control’s index functions in the same way as Core parking does. Even if you set an index to 100 percent, the Quick CPU app will raise (and maintain) the frequency up to the CPU base frequency limit, and will then use dynamic scaling for any extra output.
During normal system load, the system’s CPU runs at a constant clock speed (which indicates its overall performance). In reality, if heavy lifting is needed (considering power consumption), Turbo Boost kicks in, increasing CPU clock frequency for the length of the mission. When the TurboBoost index becomes set to its highest value, the CPU will still strive to provide output that is greater than the performance level equivalent to the Processor base frequency.

Quick CPU is a free performance optimization tool that provides a user-friendly interface for users who want to be able to adjust the performance – power consumption of their workstation by themselves. While it may seem to be addressing power-users, the truth is that it can work equally fine for less-savvy users considering that it comes with several presets to help you increase the performance without harming your computer.
