Awesome job with the thorough testing. Handy to know for those wanting to get the absolute most out of the cpu for certain games.
I am curious if there's any noticeable difference in frame times with e cores on or off. Would be an interesting follow up. Maybe mix in hyper threading on or off as well. All core and threads on. All cores on no HT, p cores only and no HT, and for fun e cores only lol. Maybe even test with all cores locked at max clock vs allowing them to down clock based on use. Test fps and 1% and .1% lows as well.
Just an idea for a slow day I suppose. HT and turbo boosting might be negligible, but I do remember arguments back in the day about possible impact on latency with HT or turbo speeds or frequency changes, etc. Maybe figure out which games or game engines prefer which environments. This could be a lot of work though so limiting to a couple of games/engines would be understandable. Especially if running just one batch of tests shows its basically a pointless task.
The max value is not +/-100%. It's +/-15%. That makes a tiny 5% variance go 1/3 of the way, which the brains really perceives as 33%. It's a means to emphasize small differences, but when used without a disclaimer is really just a way condition the mind towards a certain outcome.
Hah, reminds me of a video that I just watched today (or rather listened to)
