Intel's Turbo Boost vs AMD's Turbo Core

Intel's Turbo Boost technology finally has a competitor in the form of AMD's Turbo Core. So how do the two technologies work and squeeze the most out of your CPU?

His prediction in the now seminal 'Cramming more components onto integrated circuits' article from 1965 (pdf) evolved into Intel's corporate philosophy and have driven the semiconductor industry forward for 45 years. This prediction was that the number of transistors on a CPU would double every 18 months.
