Or it could be as simple as Bulldozer not having a linear power-clockspeed relationship. If the power consumption goes up twice as fast as the change in clock speeds, that would reasonably explain the claims. We already know Bulldozer's speed was limited because of its power consumption and thermal issues. Makes sense that it grows quickly up as well as down.

My System Specs

Arrow FYI - Opteron 6274, AMD's 2.2 GHz, 115 watt

Quote:
The test unit arrived with its all four sockets populated with Opteron 6274, AMD's 2.2 GHz, 115 watt model, which carries 16 MB of L2 cache, and an equal amount of L3 cache. Also on board were six 73 GB, 15 K SAS drives configured as RAID 5 and controlled by an integrated PERC H700 RAID controller, 128 GB of 1600 MHz, DDR3 dual-ranked memory and Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise. To test the unit, we installed Geekbench 2.2.0, the latest version of the Primate Labs benchmark.
The unit's high overall score was 20,422, more than double the high score (9,695) of the same machine with four 12-core AMD 6100 processors (48 cores total) and 64B of memory (only 32GB of which was addressable by Windows). In other words, the PowerEdge R815 as configured with 50 percent more processor cores more than doubled its previous Geekbench score.
