Efficiency: Optimizing The Clock Rate Of AMD's Phenom II X6

Multi-Thread Efficiency

The multi threaded efficiency test includes most of the other benchmarks including 3ds Max, Adobe Photoshop, HandBrake, MainConcept, WinRAR and 7-Zip.

Apparently, power efficiency increases with overclocking in multi-threaded applications. However, more aggressive overclocks up to 3.8 GHz have a negative impact on overall power consumption.
