If you looked at the TechPowerUp link I provided earlier, you'd see that the cores' max frequencies scale depending on how many of them are active at any time.
It should be able to do ~4.5ghz when all cores are active, with frequency going up from there as core activity decreases. 12 cores active, Cyberpunk does not do, so turbo clocks would be higher than that, but if they're set to not go over 4.2ghz...

The base clock being run at 4.2ghz is some setting...

@kurdtnz , does RM override settings like Intel XTU? Would uninstalling it be necessary?

I found a different forum where someone posted that the Asus Optimal setting in BIOS did this so I'll change it tomorrow back to default in BIOS and report back.

To be honest, Im not too sure as I havnt used RM for a while? I think I was having an issue with it so uninstalled but I think it can override some settings.
