Hi

I have an i5 7600k overclocked to 4.2ghz.

When running a CPU benchmark on CPU-Z, I am getting a higher than 'reference' single thread bench score when compared to its self as a reference. My score 504.9 versus reference score 480. However my multi-thread score is 1147.4 versus the reference being 1837.

Why is it that my multi thread is underscoring itself?

The score would vary massively with clockspeed...

With many 7600K owners likely overclocking all cores to 4.6-4.7 GHz or so, one could likely venture an educated guess that those scores comprise the majority of those above you.

I see, okay. So if I understand you correctly, you’re suggesting the reference score I refer too is one that’s almost crowd sourced, for want of a better term, from those that have OC’d their cpu higher than mine?
