  1. Hey, Im not sure if thsi is how it is supposed to be, but if i could get another 600 MHz out of my processor, that would be awsome. Please refer to the picture below. See how it says Pentium 4 2.6GHZ, 2.0 GHz Im not sure what this means?

    What type of computer do you have? We need to know either the model (if it's from an OEM) or the hardware configuration.

    Are you using the Speed Step technology since normally how Intel places speeds is by 600mhz on average not always though

    It's not always by 600MHz. Intel reduces the multiplier on the CPU to lower it's speed (if it supports SpeedStep).

    On my machine it shows the "corrected" amount of speed that's actually happening. In other words, I have 3.4 GHZ listed at the top, but in the spot that you highlighted my stats sat 3.39GHZ. Like that's the (actual) speed that I am getting.

    It shows slight differences, not a whopping 600mhz difference.

    I'm betting speedstep, or you might want to go into BIOS and tinker around with CPU settings.

    I've seen this problem before, but it just randomly went away??
