Hello, I have an Intel i5 750 processor running at default speed. I used CPU Speed Pro to check the actual speed. The results were: Description- Intel Core i5 @ 2.67Ghz. Published Speed- 2.7Ghz. Actual Speed- 2814Mhz(2.8Ghz). I am curious as to how the rated default speed of the cpu of 2.67Ghz is actually running at 2.8Ghz not overclocked. Also, what does the "Published Speed" mean. Thanks to anyone for thier help.
Intel calls them 2.66 Ghz....
Some mainboards 'cheat' in their BIOS, by adding perhaps 1 Mhz or so on assorted base clock speeds, sometimes totaling an extra few more MHz when dealing with high clock multipliers...
like my mobo, my FSB is at 340 yet in cpuz it says its 341.8, and i get a little extra performance (but its not even noticeable)
