Guys, why not explain to jammydodger, if you can penetrate, that most software cannot divide the load between cores, and uses only one of the cores. The effective speed is, then, the speed of a single core.
It is unlikely that all cores will be run continuously, so multiplying the speed of a single core by the number of cores is silly. As is arguing over how it may be stated by the DxDiag or by a manufacturer.

Wait so you realize that the "Official" way to state the processor speed is not by multiplying the cores?

That isn't what I'm saying. Yes I know that is a way it can be done. I still stand by my way of saying it. But what I was saying is that I've had enough of this thread and I'm not going to post in here ANYTHING about damned processors!

Your dxdiag can be obtained by following these instructions:

Click Start > Run. type in dxdiag and press Enter.  You may see a popup asking about WHQL drivers, click Yes/Ok to proceed.

In the window that appears, click the button that says Save All Information, when the Save Dialog box appears, save the file to your desktop.  To upload the file here, click Additional Options underneath the reply area and choose Browse near Attach.  Browse to your desktop, click the file and click Open
