I just bought the intel core i5-9400f and its stock clock is 2.9 ghz and it boosts to 4.1 ghz. Is it boosting to 4.1ghz comparable to being temporarily overclocked to 4.1 ghz, even though you cant manually overclock it. Whats the difference between overclocking to 4.1 ghz and boosting to 4.1ghz.
4.1Ghz is only a 1 core boost, meaning if only 1 core is active it will boost that core to 4.1Ghz, with 2 cores active it will only boost to 4Ghz, and the all core boost is 3.9Ghz, and yes a 3.9Ghz manual overclock would be exactly the same
