Laptop processor speed

  pluto30 18:54 30 Nov 2004

I have just bought a new laptop.

It has a AMD Athlon XP-M 3000+ processor.

It is suppost to be running at 1.6GHz.

When I looked at the System properties it says it is 398 MHz.

Is this a fault or am I missing something here.

Can anyone help.

The processor does not work flat out all the time this is so the batery will last for a decent period of time.
I think the technical term is called AMD PowerNow technology
