What program are you using for single threaded workload?
you won't see all cores hitting their boost clocks according to their speed steps under multithreaded workloads like they used to. Instead all cores will max out at the max all core boost speed (which is 4.7 for your CPU).

Older intel CPU would hit their max boost clocks according to speed steps under all core load.
For instance i7-7700K, base speed is 4.2 GHZ and following speed steps 2/2/2/3
So the boost frequency for each core under all core load is:
core 1 4.4 GHz
core 2 4.4 GHz
core 3 4.4 GHz
core 4 4.5 GHz

Not sure what the above chart is/was attempting to say, but, the 7700K's stock config/behavior was 1 core boost at 4.5 GHz, 2 cores at 4.4 GHz, 3 cores at 4.3 GHz, and an all core loading of 4.2 GHz... (No real 'if's, ands, or buts' about that... that was/is stock behavior, barring MCE mode or specifying higher multipliers in BIOS or XTU, etc...)

Its 10700k not 7700k
