Is turbo frequency the same for all active cores in the processor?
Yes I know, I can sometime see one core is different from the others for the duration of one sample, but for the life of me I am not able to make a capture where two are different from the other two, let alone in this order.Martin said:Well, the screen posted might show different clocks across cores because the resolved core ratio/frequency can change several times per second. So while HWiNFO reads the current status from each core (starting from the first in a cycle) the other one might change the ratio during the process, which is then captured by HWiNFO. It's very difficult to report actual core clock because of this.
The guy has 3 different CPU which one of them is 3rd gen or less, need his feedback on which one was used for this capture.Martin said:Also Intel's document are sometimes not clear about this. Somewhere I have seen claiming that 4th gen CPUs allow different ratios per core, but mostly they claim this is not supported.
But those must work for the CPU and not per core don't they?Martin said:The actual clock is also capped by several other factors, especially the power limiting logic (PL1, PL2, tau, cTDP, etc).
