One of these beauties

Also, the turbo key had to do with super old like 33MHz processors that when you set the computer to "turbo mode"...it would double the cpu frequency....or something like that.
Rather ironically, the point of a turbo button was to slow down
the processor. In the days of yore, timing elements in software (particularly in video games) were done by counting CPU clock cycles, and thus would fail hard if you ran the software on a CPU with a higher clock frequency than the software was designed for. By the time the original Pentium came out, this was a sufficiently serious problem that manufacturers installed buttons to dial down the motherboard's clock frequency so that timings would work as expected.
Thankfully, timing has ever since been done in a way that is unrelated to CPU frequency, so we no longer need a button to slow down our computers in order to play games on brand new CPUs.
