Think about you and your desktop.
You overclock to 4ghz. Happy as can be. Playing single threaded games all day long.
You sell it to a friend. But he does not game much, instead he converts videos with multi threaded apps. Then 2 days in, he calls you a liar and a cheat and wants his money back.
What happened? Your single threaded game never taxed the CPU much. A lot was done on gpu.
His apps used the CPU to the Max. And he crashed a lot.
This is what Intel and amd take advantage of in their Turbo core cpus.
If I peg only 3 cores my 1090T scales higher than when I build your kernel and peg all 6 cores.
Why did I go here? Compare 1.4ghz vibrant with 1.4ghz nexus s CPU scores.
I don't think we compare apples to apples. More efficient use of the CPU has to be involved, otherwise it wouldn't be very similar hardware.
