Windows 7: True Processor Speed

True Processor Speed

Other than CPUID, is there any utility out there that will tell you your true Processor speed (NOT the the Manufacturers rating) ??????

Thanx in Advance

CPUID (CPU-Z) provides the processors true speed. Are you have problems with it?

No Problems - I just get conflicting results - Is CPUZ correct here ???? Am I at 4 Ghz ? Will try Solarstarshines Utility next.

Did some more checking - Apparently CPU-Z is the only utility that correctly shows my 980X overclocked to 4 Ghz. Called several "heavy duty" techs at Alienware - we ran bunch of tests - looks like CPU-Z is only one that measures true core frequency. Still searching the Internet for something else that will show true core frequency.

Did a little comparing using Super Pi - At 4 Ghz runs 1M at approx 10.2 sec

PBCOPTER - Mystery Solved. Alienware had me change all the CPU turbo Ratios (for all 6 cores) from 28 to 30. The Aurora was originally shipped to me by Alienware overclocked to 3.73 Ghz. The Bclk is set to 133.7 Mhz. If you Multiply the 133.7 Mhz by the Turbo Ratio of 28 you get 3743.6 Mhz (or 3.73 Ghz) but if you multiply the Bclk of 133.7 Mhz times the Turbo Ratios that Alienware had me change to 30 then you get 133.7 x 30 or 4011 Mhz (or 4.011 Ghz).

So CPUZ is correct in determining the Processors True Speed - Thanx PBCOPTER Double Click the Image to enlarge the CPUZ data. Just for the record Alienware also had me change the CPU CORE OFFSET to +100 Mv and the TDP limit to 230. Also Checked all the core temps and the GPU temps - everything below 50 degrees C.

This is a mighty fine processor. What do you do with all that power (when you are not gaming)?

I like the All CPU Temp Windows 7 gadget:

Combined with Coretemp you can monitor your "true" processor speed and core temps in a gadget.
