Hi!!
The windows system information and the cpuid from amd indentify my computer as having a chip of athlon xp-m 2800+. However, the frequencies do not make sense, system information gives me 796mhz, aida varies and gives me around 1300 mhz and tells me taht i have a 1900+ chip, and cpuid gives me a speed of 1400mhz, I ran dxdiag and it gave me 790Mhz... I have a laptop, don t know if it changes anything

Was i ripped off? Can anyone help me? Why are the frquencies so low?

Moved to Mobile section

ALL mobile AMD-CPUs support PowerNOW! - it is a power-saving feature that will dynamically adjust your CPU's clockspeed and voltage depending on CPU-utilization...i.e. if your not doing anything, the CPU will run with reduced clockspeed and voltage, thus saving power - if the CPU is being used(e.g. when playing a game) it will be automatically set back to full speed and voltage.
That's why your CPU is running at different speeds.
More info here' ">http://www.amd.com/us-en/Proce...1276_807%5E964,00.html


You can control PowerNOW! by setting power-schemes in the energy control panel.
If you're on A/C-power, you can select 'Always on' if you want your CPU to run at full speed all the time, basically disabling PowerNOW!.
