I saw an article claiming that for GB4 they were different. You know they are the same for GB5?

OK, checking now. You are correct!
They were different for 4, but not for 5:
https://www.geekbench.com/doc/geekbench4-cpu-workloads.pdf

https://www.geekbench.com/doc/geekbench5-cpu-workloads.pdf

Do you think my point for DVFS is correct, or does the board firmware have much more control than the OS over that? On x86 Win/Linux I have no idea where the knobs live.
