Correct. I was just thinking about base_freq relation.
I can set floor above or below base_freq, HWP will reach upto ceiling/
max.

For example:

Floor above base of 0x0d

Busy% Bzy_MHz TSC_MHz M0X774
51.33 3500 1498 0x0000000000000000
99.70 3500 1498 0x00000
0008000270e
2.74 3500 1498 0x000000008000270e
2.92 3500 1498
0x000000008000270e
99.77 3500 1498 0x000000008000270e
99.78 3500
1498 0x000000008000270e
2.98 3500 1498 0x000000008000270e
99.75
3500 1498 0x000000008000270e
3.01 3500 1498 0x00000
0008000270e

Floor Below base of 0x0d

Busy% Bzy_MHz TSC_MHz M0X774
51.33 3500 1498 0x0000000000000000
3.08 3500 1498 0x000000008000270c
99.77 3500 1498 0x000000008000270c
2.87 3500 1498 0x000000008000270c
99.75 3500 1498 0x000000008000270c
2.81 3500 1498 0x000000008000270c
99.76 3500 1498 0x000000008000270c
99.78 3500 1498 0x000000008000270c
2.82 3500 1498 0x000000008000270c
