Turbo Boost allows a processor to speed up based on demand or chore while overclocking sets the processor, memory or gpu up permanently with no ability to cut back. Many systems allowing turbo boost are intentional and have no affect on warranty of system or components while overclocking in many cases voids warranties as well.
Turbo Boost is more a marketing ploy as today all cpus and gpus have this to some degree and using it is not really a replacement for overclocking which has its risks to system but enhances the operation of the unit all the time.
