I was wondering if both the physical cores of my core i3 2.4GHz CPU are running at the rated speed of 2.4GHz in real-time. But then I found in HWinfo that the cores are actually running at 1.2GHz separately. Is that true? Or the software’s fault?
I mean if my CPU is rated at 2.4GHz, then shouldn’t each of the cores run at 2.4 GHz? Or in a dual core processor, they sell the units rating the speed as the summation of both cores speeds?
