I have an desktop computer with an Phenom X3 Triple-Core CPU. In the computer's manual, in the specifications page, it says that my cpu have an original clock rate of 2.2GHz, but when I try some programs that should tell me the real clock (like Everest), they all say 1179MHz(1.1GHz). I couldn't find the problem to this, and is that going to affect my computer's overall performance??? Can someone help me?
Use a real-time program like CPU-Z, then open a CPU-intensive task like Prime95 and see if the speed instantly increases.
