Core Speed and Multipler Question

I purchased a Dell 8500 XPS with i7 -3770 CPU. I have just run SIW CPU Info and obtained the following:

Is it normal to have different speeds and multiplier on cores? ( see core # 4 speed and multiplier above )

Windows 7 64 bit SP1. EFI boot partition., full EFI boot.
 
 

With Turbo boost, when the rest of the cores are idle, one of the cores can be boosted above normal multiplier. A multiplier of 16 indicates cores 1-3 are idle (idle with speedstep will lower your multiplier to a minimum of 16) while 4 is boosted to 3.7 GHz. This gives single threaded applications faster CPU cycles.
