core frequency

core frequency

The clock speed of the CPU, which is generally significantly higher than the speed of the buses that connect to it. See system bus.

Speed Shift is Intel's technology that rapidly transitions core frequency based upon demand.
It also includ es 256 KB of on-die L2 cache operating at the CPU's core frequency. The Intel 440BX system controller chipset provides the core logic that makes the board PC/AT compatible.
The [chi square] values also were used to test the core frequency distributions for the quantitative traits against the frequency distribution for the World Collection (Steel and Torrie, 1980).
The Itanium 9500 series offers some impressive advantages over the older generation of Itanium processor, with a new microarchitecture doubling the cores and throughput, while the core frequency is now up to 2.53GHz, with an 8% lowered TDP, and 80% less idle power draw.
A new microarchitecture offers double the cores and throughput of the previous generation chips, core frequency has been bumped up to 2.53GHz, and TDP has been lowered by 8 percent while the idle power draw has been slashed by a whopping 80 percent.
To be precise, the core frequency is at 1072 MHz which is 92 MHz above stock and the boost clock is at 1137 MHz, which is a cool 104 MHz OC.
PT Boost is very similar to Nvidia's GPU Boost, both using presets of boost bins with an corresponding voltage, which in effect rank up the voltage and core frequency depending on the workload, and power/thermal conditions.
