Question about ATI RADEON X1650 Graphic Card
My pentium d 925 3.0 4m/800 fsb decreases it's core speed to 2.4 then back to 3.0..also the multiplier down to 12 from 15...i have an asus p5pe-vm motherboard with 1gb ddr 400 ram and a 500w psu,2 optical drives...please tell me,is this normal to a pentium d processor to pluctuate it's core spped?
It is absolutely normal if the processors speed and multiplier fluctuates. It doesn't mean that the processor is damaged. This technology is called Intel Speedstep. When your processor is not used on 100% it reduces its speed, so the power consumption decreases. When you need more power, the processor will automatically clock itself to higher speed.
for more information check here.
If you want to turn off this feature, you have to do it in your motherboards bios. You can find it in advanced ---> cpu settings ---> Intel Speedstep, you have to choose Disabled.
