Each core in a processor has a different maximum boost capability, hence Intel's development of its Turbo Boost Max 3.0 feature (for HEDT chips) that locks threads to preferred cores that can boost higher than others. However, all of Intel's cores are capable of reaching the standard Turbo Boost 2.0 frequencies, and according to our testing, so are all of the cores in previous-gen Ryzen models.
That stands in contrast to AMD's new policy of only having certain cores that can reach the peak frequency. That means that only one, or a few, of the cores in each Ryzen processor would need to bin at the advertised single-core boost clock to meet AMD's (perhaps legal) requirements, while other cores can be slower-performers that can't reach the maximum boost clock.

7nm isn't easy.
