Does eight cores running at 800mhz equal 3.6ghz clock speed?

I have i7 4770K and i'm trying to figure out if it's under performing. When i look at the cpuid it says the clock speed is 800 but there's 8 cores, does that mean im fine or is my cpu running severely slow?

    When it needs to speed up it will do that automatically

    how is it under performing?
