  1. Considering TechSpot's audience mix of techies, hardware enthusiasts, IT pros and gamers, the question above sounds overly simplistic, if not insulting, but is it? Over the last decade, the MHz…

    ATM a Celeron 900 (Mobile) 2.2 Ghz. SIW says "2195 Mhz".
     
  5. Phenom II X4 965BE 3.4GHz.

    The way I see it, the gamers are the backbone of the computer hardware market as they're the ones constantly buying new processors, video cards, cases, CPU coolers and all that performance candy. I believe that as long as the PC gaming industry is alive and well, so will the computer hardware industry be here to stay.

    I just saw the box on my closet yesterday :)

    It even has 8 megs of ram, upgrated from 4, and a massive hard drive with 110 megs (220 with hard drive compresion)

    Well, that's nice. I think that the consumer prebuilt, school, industrial, and government markets spend more money on hardware than gamers. Then there's the mobile segment.
    I really don't think you're all that significant in keeping the computer industry alive.

    I would feel a lot more comfortable if you overclocked that to 2.2 flat.


    K, Thanks, bye…
     
  15. I don't get this article.

    If I type "Core i7 870" into google the first result
    indicates that it is a quad core with each core @ 2.93Ghz
    What's the problem ?

    Obviosly ones takes the processor architecture and date of release
    into consideration as well, this isn't so diffuct to do is it?

    Fast architecture + high clock speed = Best performance

    Slow architercture + high clock speed = Slower performance

    Too much heat added.....no thanks. It seems to keep up with this nonsense just fine, running as badly under clocked as it is.

    Besides, I type so slowly, there's no point to it.

    Lots of comments in less than an hour, however you're missing the point... you are not saying anything about recalling the spec yourself or looking it up (DON'T!) :)

    Is the $200 question, Do you know your Ram divider?:D

    In all honesty, I have no clue. I'm running a Core i5-750 (and have been since late 09), but I have no idea what its base or Turbo Boost frequencies are offhand.

    That answer won't come up until the "Double Jeopardy" round. And you had to screw it up by giving the question ahead of time.
