Ok, what's wrong with x = 32 then? So basically if you're looking at
avg watts, you don't want to have more than 16 threads, otherwise
powersaving sucks on that particular uarch and platform. Can you say
that for all platforms out there?

Also, I've added in the columns below the Energy = Power * Time thing.

And the funny thing is, exactly there where avg watts is better in
powersaving, energy for workload retire is worse. And the other way
around. Basically, avg watts vs retire energy is reciprocal. Great :-\.
