Question about Computers & Internet
Ok I got this processor 3.66ghz that when i go to system properties it says 3.66 ghz 2.66 ghz what does the second ghz mean?
Is it slowing down?
Can i fix it?
System Properties will show you two things for CPU speed:
- the first is the CPU's 'identifier string', which is hard-coded into the CPU's microarchitecture (designed to show the CPU's optimal speed)
- the second is the speed that the CPU is actually running at
For example, on my System Properties window:
Intel Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz 3.11GHz
This shows that the CPU is designed to run at 2.4GHz by default. It also shows that I am running the CPU overclocked at 3.11GHz.
For a more accurate reading, you can download CPU-Z from http://www.cpuid.com which will tell you the CPU's current clock speed, along with other useful information.
You need to check that the motherboard you're using is capable of running the CPU at 3.66GHz.

On the system properties you will able to check your processor speed and your memory, it is possible that the other description is referring to your memory or Ram.
You can use other program like aida32 to check your computer spec or you can try the steps below.
To check the CPU speed, from the Start menu, select Run... , then enter msinfo32 .
You can also type DXDIAG then enter.
