Trying to find info on the factory default uncore frequency for this processor. A look at the official intel site does not provide this particular info for the cpu. A flick through the web also provides ambiguous views & opinions.
So is this a case of depending on the quality of the silicon? I mean in my Gigabyte Z590 board it runs as 41x (default) but views across the web indicate it could be 43x or even 44x ( combo i7 & i9) I've seen my system running with everything in the bios at factory defaults & the cpu under full load drop to 39x (thermal throttling I guess).
Just putting this out there cause' I'm thinking this is a case of "every chip is different" scenario?
