Is my Pentium D processor actually 6 ghz?

Hi, I'm hoping you can can identify if my processor is a 6Ghz dual core like its supposed to be.

The link for the CPU-ID shows 3Ghz on the specification but then has 2 core noted on the bottom.

Does that mean 2*3= 6Ghz?

thanks for the help :)

Processors are not normally rated by multiplying the frequency by the number of cores.

So a 3GHz dual-core would have two cores, each of which run at 3GHz.

That is NOT the same as a single core running at 6GHz.

It's probably a Pentium 4 3.0GHz running at 3.0GHz. CPU-Z will tell you click here

@ ├četa, now I'm puzzled here.

I might be reading it wrong but Intel don't
make 1.5Ghz Pentium Ds according to the site

Looks like to me,you have a Pentium D Dual core with each cpu capable of 3GHZ,not a total of 6GHZ.

You've got what i said you have (and what your cpuid pic shows

A twin core processor running at 3GHz - that's each one runs at 3GHz

Thanks to all for your input.
