If there are dozens of publications saying that, please post some links for all of us. It would be news to me. And I'd like to correct my position.
I regularly see appreciable 'solar boost' with solar arrays 200 watts+. I measure the amperage coming into the solar controller and then directly to the batteries. Always an amperage increase except for extremely low light situations like morning/ evening very lie sun angles.
I'm with Bold on this one. 'Angry' and Ralph can continue to espouse the virtues of dated, simple modulating technology while most other folks use MPPT to gat the most from their panels.
And wait 'till we get the Victron solar controllers fully integrated. They have the fastest MPPT sampling times in the industry to produce even more 'boost'.
