Everywhere on the internet, and geekbench scores, you see that the Mac min M2 Pro is said to run at 3.5Ghz, its the internet concensus.
But mine, 32GB 10 cores, only runs at 3.3 Ghz instead of 3.5Ghz!
Is it because I'm using latest ventura 13.3.1 ?

I checked with Geekbench 6 and Mx Power Gadget tehy both agree.

Am I the only one ?

"Apple M2 Pro 10-Core"

"the P-Cores up to 3.7 GHz (mostly 3.3 GHz in multi-threaded workloads and 3.4 GHz in single threaded)"

I'm not sure about the reliability of the info since Apple has stopped listing detailed specs of Apple Silicon chips and Apple fan boys keep saying users should stop paying attention to GHz because it is no longer relevant....
