About effective clock speed


New Member
I made a benchmark today and start to tell things a bit different...
Clock speed is "maximum" clock speed and effective clock is current real clock of each core.
Example, OC my cores to 4.3Ghz but effective clock is much lower due to C-State and another things to reduce power and head.
It's correct write "clock" as "maximum clock" and "effective clock" as "current real clock"?
