CPU clocked speed vs CPU ID ?

I am trying to figure out how to read the speed of my CPU ID validation. Would the Frequency be the speed your CPU is running at ?

i.e. my Frequency is

CPU Arch : 1 CPU - 6 Cores - 6 Threads
CPU PSN : AMD FX-6200 Six-Core Processor
CPU EXT : MMX(+), SSE (1, 2, 3, 3S, 4.1, 4.2, 4A), x86-64, AMD-V, AES, AVX, XOP
CPUID : F.1.2 / Extended : 15.1
CPU Cache : L1 : 3 x 64 / 6 x 16 KB - L2 : 3 x 2048 KB
CPU Cache : L3 : 8192 KB
Core : Zambezi (32 nm) / Stepping : OR-B2
Freq : 1615.43 MHz (230.78 * 7)

Does this seem right ?

  1. Yus. CPU frequency is your CPU speed.

    Yeah the frequency. AMD has a build in method of reducing clock speed at idle to save power, I can't remember what it's called. If you run a game or something else cpu intensive and then check cpuz you should see the frequency at it's default value.

    Is your current speed

    Mhm. Like Intel's Speedstep.

    You can turn it off if you want, but there's not much reason to. Some people think having it off makes for more stable overclocking, but I think that's a thing of the past.

    Is that what it's called? Aw man, AMD, what are you doing. That's a terrible name lol.
  7. Awesome. Thanks for the quick responses everyone.
