When running reference xhpl (LINPACK) benchmark, the CodeXL power profiler displays the CPU frequency as 2.4GHz.
I ran nbench (a single-threaded benchmark) to verify that the reported speed was not due to throttling, but in both cases, the CPU speed was 2.2-2.4GHz
Which of the output values should I take as the accurate one?
Zhong Liang ONG
AMD Kaveri A10-3850K - 3.7GHz (advertised speed and dmidecode value)
32GB DDR3-2133 RAM
Crucial M550 240GB SSD
Centos 7.0.1406 x86_64
AMD Catalyst Omega 14.501.1003 driver
The frequency shown here in CodeXL power profiler is "Core Effective Frequency". This is the effective frequency of a core over a period of time.
