The Kaby Lake laptop from work has a max frequency of 4.0 GHz. The Ice Lake Dell laptop has a max frequency of 3.9 GHz.

So, in the Google octane 2 web benchmark, the Ice Lake system should destroy the Kaby Lake one....except that it doesn't.

The Kaby Lake system slightly beats it.

How is that possible?

Could it be that the Ice Lake system cannot maintain the max turbo boost frequency for a long period of time?
