Phenom II X3 720 Problem Tags: CPUs Phenom Last response: February 22, 2010 11:18 AM in CPUs Share syncgear February 22, 2010 10:23:58 AM Hi all, I had bought a machine with the following configs: AMD Phenom II X3 720 BE ASUS M3N78-EM 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 etc. 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.
