There were no changes in place for that test, it was showing the effects of the new 8/19 firmware. In fact the whole thread is rendered immaterial by the 8/19 FW because the setting no longer has any effect.So is that saint the I5 starts at 2.6 Ghz, throttles to 1.9 Ghz and then rises to 2.2 (with your changes?
What was the out of box baseline that would be comparable to the numbers I posted for the I7?
Re the frequencies those are the graph line frequencies which does not include turbo boost. If you click the processor frequency in the tool it will report a max and min as well which went up to the turbo max of 2.9 GHz
