Phenom II X3 720 Problem
Feb 22, 2010, 10:23 AM
I had bought a machine with the following configs:
AMD Phenom II X3 720 BE
Corsair XMS2 2GB X 2
Machine is functioning without any major issues but its kinda slow, I feel. When I checked with CPU-Z, I found the following things:
Core Speed (Core#0) : 800 MHz
Multiplier : 4.0
where as the reviews etc for the same proc showed values of
2800 MHz and multiplier 14.0
what have these factors got to do with machine performance?
Is this an issue? I am attaching screenshots. Someone please help me.
the rest of images i will post if required. Please let me know if i need to give you anymore data.
Thanks a lot in advance.

Got it. Thanks.
I had just now read somwhere that when its not required, the CPU frequency will be turned down.
