    AMD misguiding processor speed?


    How come my CPU is AMD(Sempron) 2600+ but system properties says it is 1.84GH?

    I thought perhaps this +2600 has nothing to do with the processor speed which in this case it would be very misguiding but when checked ebay I noticed that many sellers consider this number as the processor speed.

    The 2600+ is what is called the Performance Index, the 1.833 GHz is called Clock Speed
    If you do sum research on it your will get a better understanding on it.
