yes, this is increase power consumption. But increase stability & latencies.

my old xeons (previous sandybridge) and amd, always are at maximum cpu 
frequency.

Redhat have a special daemon "tuned", which have some tunables profiles for 
this (latency,bandwith, ...)

I'm seeing a lot less retransmit since I have disable pstate.
(but maybe this is because of bug where frequency was stuck low, and I have 
also a big cluster with a lot of vms)

What is the suggestion - disbale the pstate driver? I think that would increase 
power consumption?

Really? You observed retransmits because of different CPU frequency. I think 
retransmits need 
much larger speed differences, for example caused by high load (as opposed to 
idle nodes).
