How Does Intel Measure Core 2 Duo Speeds?
I was wondering how intel measures their core 2 duo speeds. I know this isnt really a linux question, but I figure people here will know.
If I bought a 2.1 GHz Core 2 Duo processor, does that mean there are:
two cores operating at 1.05 GHz
two cores operating at 2.1GHz
From a marketing perspective, you would expect the first, but when you consider that the clock speed is the rate at which a cpu cycles......
AUGH, my brain starts looping. Anyone know?
