I know this is suppose to be a 2.7ghz processor. Core Speed: 1403.0MHz Muliti: 7 Bus Speed: 200.4 MHz HT Link: 1803.9 Mhz It's a 65nm processor at 1.312V Motherboard is at Gigabyte GA-MA780G-UD3H New drivers, maybe? Any help it greatly appreciated. More about : amd 7750 half speed B-Unit May 26, 2009 11:42:35 PM Its called Cool&Quiet, it slows your CPU down to save power when theres nothing stressful going on. Launch a program or fire up something like Prime95 and it should shoot back up to 2.7Ghz. ohiou_grad_06 May 26, 2009 11:43:26 PM If you start doing more intensive tasks, you may see your speed going up and down, amd has a feature called cool n quiet which will downclock the chip while it's not under a load in order to be more energy efficient.

You may need to update your BIOS. AKM880 May 27, 2009 1:18:42 AM Download a stress test program like OCCT or Prime95. Use CPU-Z to monitor the clock speed, while your running either one of those programs. andymc444 May 27, 2009 5:00:34 AM Running a p95 test at 3.0ghz AKM880 May 27, 2009 6:48:38 AM So does CPU-Z show the CPU clock speeds going back to normal? andymc444 May 27, 2009 7:41:56 AM Yeah, its at 3ghz. Going strong on P95 For some reason the mulit just switched to 6.5. daship a b à CPUs May 27, 2009 3:49:24 PM Its actually called speedstep, and it can be disabled in Bios if it bothers you. Google speedstep. ill b ben May 27, 2009 4:11:46 PM pretty sure speedstep is for intel.. but yeah ''basicly'' its speedstep loneninja a c 83 à CPUs May 27, 2009 4:52:41 PM daship said:Its actually called speedstep, and it can be disabled in Bios if it bothers you. Google speedstep. You won't find speed step in any AMD BIOS since its an Intel thing, however AMD's Cool n Quiet is the same thing with just a different name. andymc444 May 28, 2009 12:09:13 AM Really asshole? You think I've never heard of Cool N Quiet? Running p95 the thing never went up or down. For some reason the Multi was set to 6.5. Guess I didn't see that one in my Manual. Prick. sirverik June 9, 2009 2:39:22 AM i ran super pi for about 3 minutes and my pheno mdoesnt go up from 1.3ghz, its supposed to run at 2.3 Can't find your answer ? Ask !
