Disrepancy between CPU Frequency reported by CodeXL 1.6.7247 and dmidecode

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?


Thank you!
