So i just tested this out. I ran the app stability test..it maxes out the cpu. Then checked System Panel app. With high performane checked the cpu ran past 60C (the max system panel reads for cpu temp) still running at 2.26 ghz. With high performance un checked the cpu throttled back at 55c to 1.5 ghz. So there is a difference.
