It certainly can! But at around 4Ghz (4-4.2ish?) on first or second gen i7, as my example stated, that does seem to be the averages. Over 4Ghz pushes that Physics score higher, I get around 11K on the physics score myself with 5Ghz of second gen i7. And this is only averages, but provides a handy rule-of-thumb that certainly has exceptions, but not many within the scope of description.
