Can anybody advise on the speed of a 2.4 XP Athlon processor. Bios says it is running at 2.0ghz. Is this correct or could it be faster.

This particular processor runs at an actual clock speed of 1.995GHz as opposed to the 2.4GHz you might expect.

The multiplier for this chip is 15, which multiplied by the system clock frequency of 133MHz gives you the expected result of 1995MHz or 1.995GHz.

If you didn’t already know, AMD began naming their processors to match the speed of the Pentium 4 chip that it most closely competes with. So in this case, you can assume that the AMD processor running at 1.995GHz performs as well as an Intel Pentium 4 running at 2.4GHz.
