Well it shows up as two cpu's in Task Manager with the line between the two graphs. I saw that it said 1600Mhz as well. I haven't taken the processor out of the computer to see the specs though. I will see what else I can find out without doing that.
Yes did the bios updates and anything that I needed from Dell. I have Service Pack 3 on it as well
It's a Dimension 4400
But don't you think it is strange to have these different specs on this PC? I have another one that is a Precision with a 2Ghz P4 and it seems to run alot faster. So who is right the OS or the bios on what processor this is?
Congratulations everyone. Everyone is stumped why My Computer Properties and Device Manager says that my CPU is a 3.2Ghz but the bios says 1.6Ghz. And there are no settings in the Bios to turn off Hyperthreading and
A 1.6 Pentium 4 should not be a hyperthreader.
I am trying to put an image of what CPUz says but I haven't been able to do that yet. Let me try again.
