On average, the performance gain is 11%, which is quite an increase. The company does not stop there and continues to present the performance of a few content creation applications where the processor is up to 16% faster and 6% faster on average. We still don’t know if these benchmarks were run on the stock power profiles or the “Unlimited Power” profile and if these are indeed stock results, then they are pretty good.
