So I was doing a few simple tests between the various computers I have, just to see how they compare. One of the things I did was run Geekbench 4's 64bit CPU benchmark, since it is cross-platform, so it could give me some idea of how my 2016 tMBP's i7-6920HQ compared to, say, my i7-2600k in my Windows 10 desktop. I was quite surprised that the MBP actually benchmarked a higher GB4 score than my desktop that's running at 4.6GHz, but I digress. While I ran the GB4 benchmark I had Intel Power Gadget open so I could see how the CPU speed spiked with each test. I was surprised to see that, at no point, did the CPU go over 3.45 GHz during any of the tests, single or multi-threaded. Now I know synthetic benchmarks aren't truly representative of real-world app performance, but I am now curious to know how high everyone else's CPU goes while running GB4. I guess what I'm wondering is, was the $$ I spent on upgrading the CPU to the 2.9 GHz completely wasted, if it doesn't even throttle-up to the 3.8 GHz it's supposedly rated at, for single-thread performance? Even the base 2.6 GHz model is rated for 3.5 GHz when boosting. For those that are curious the computer had just been started, ambient temperature was 22 degrees C (around 72 F) and the test really doesn't run long enough for the CPU to start thermally throttling. Please chip-in with your CPU's peak speed while running GB4, together with your computer's info and GB scores. You can get your CPU model number using Mac CPUID. Mine hit 3.45 GHz, it's an i7-6920HQ (2.9 - 3.8 GHz) in a 2016 tMBP, scores were 4505 single threaded and 13785 multi threaded. TL;DR Post your Mac's peak CPU speed while running Geekbench 4 along with your CPU model and computer info, along with your Geekbench 4 scores so we can see how the various processor options compare.
