But in CPUs with variable clock rates, testing continues to cause posts like this.
DO NOT USE WINDOWS OWN CPU SPEED REPORT. Try CPUINFO instead.
I have a Dell studio 1737 that came with windows vista but i upgraded it to windows 10 recently about a few months.
I haven't used it for a long while but i started back.
It works fine except that i have noticed that the processor speed refuses to cross 1.2 Ghz although i tried my best to ramp it up.
I put it in high performance mode and it still wouldnt cross.
Is it set to that speed somehow?
The max speed is 2.0Ghz and it is a Pentium(R) Dual core T4200.
Can someone explain why. It hinders performance.
