is there a way in Centos to find out if the Intel turbo mode will be

Using the 'stress' utility and checking the frequency with cpupower
tells me that a CPU is running at it´s maximum frequency as reported by
cpupower --- and this frequency is less than the frequency it would run
at if it used the turbo mode.  All the other CPUs are at their minimum
frequency.  I have verified that turbo mode is enabled in the BIOS.

Is cpupower unable to report frequencies used in turbo mode despite it
always says it gets its information from the hardware?

"Didn't work" is an error.
