    Stable TurboCore on all cores?

    So, I recently installed Ubuntu 18.04.4 and noticed that not all my core can be stable at Throttled State.

    I'm using a Laptop that run AMD Richland A8-5550M @ 2.1 GHz, Turbo 3.1 GHz, and monitored my CPU speed using this command

    watch -n.1 "cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep \"^[c]pu MHz\""
    I tried running sysbench and get the following result

    CPU MHz: 13xx
    CPU MHz: 13xx
    CPU MHz: 29xx
    CPU MHz: 29xx
    the first 2 cores fluctuate between 13xx ~ 14xx while the last 2 cores fluctuate between 28xx ~ 30xx.

    My question is, is that how TurboCore works in Ubuntu? Or do I need to do something to get stable TurboCore on all cores?

    thx in advance.

    Ps: I edited the /etc/default/grub setting to:
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash radeon.bapm=1"
    I also tried to run Minecraft Bedrock Server and get 2.7-ish GHz on all cores for a second when startup then back to normal. When performing demanding action like riding a cart around town full of object the speed of the CPU is the same like above (1.3 and 2.9) making the game lag and stutter.
    This didn't happen on Windows, using the same save data and perform the same action, my CPU can achieve 2.8 GHz on all cores and of course, the lag and stutter didn't happen.

    EDIT: I forgot to post my cpupower frequency-info

    analyzing CPU 0:  driver: acpi-cpufreq
      CPUs which run at the same hardware frequency: 0
      CPUs which need to have their frequency coordinated by software: 0
      maximum transition latency: 4.0 us
      hardware limits: 1.40 GHz - 2.10 GHz
      available frequency steps:  2.10 GHz, 1.90 GHz, 1.70 GHz, 1.40 GHz
      available cpufreq governors: conservative ondemand userspace powersave performance schedutil
      current policy: frequency should be within 1.40 GHz and 2.10 GHz.
                      The governor "ondemand" may decide which speed to use
                      within this range.
      current CPU frequency: Unable to call hardware
      current CPU frequency: 1.54 GHz (asserted by call to kernel)
      boost state support:
        Supported: yes
        Active: yes
