I'am Debian user. On default kernel, lspcu output:

on liquorix kernel, value of "CPU max MHz" == default == 2800.

I think, you did not activate kernel options of Intel P-States...

Hi eiff,

I disabled the intel p-state module a few versions ago when Phoronix revealed unpredictable performance over ondemand. It can be faster, it can be slower, but when it's slower, it can be really bad.

I'm interested in turning it back on, but I'm waiting for more benchmarks to verify that it's consistently as good or better than ondemand. There's also schedutil in development and already in mainline. It looks very promising but it's also consistently about 5% or so slower than ondemand, but has potential for much higher power savings.

On the other hand, you can see what frequency you're really running by i7z or turbostat (whatever your distribution has). From what I understand, if you're running at the highest frequency with ondemand, turbo kicks in and you can see the real frequency you're running at through these two utilities. At least on my personal / work machines, I'm consistently in turbo when under full load.

Hope that clears things up for you.
