Closed CPU-Z Frequency Tags: Intel i7 CPUs Processors Apps Last response: October 31, 2010 12:21 AM in Applications Share hthero715 October 30, 2010 1:50:29 AM Why does my CPU-Z information list my i7-950 processor at 1.6ghz and not the stock 3.07ghz? Is it really running that slow? Additionally, how do I go about fixing this? I'm new to CPU-Z and the help is appreciated. Thanks.
