this confuses me, you continue to multiply all the cores together when even on intel's website its not listed like that...

That's your problem, not mine. Go sort it out or something, because I'm not doing anything about a problem that isn't mine in the first place.

Were just trying to correct you...if the processor is a 3 GHz processor and its a quad core it doesn't make it a 12GHz processor...its just not how it works

i agree with matt, and how can i fix something on intel's website when its the format we are all used to?

Well this is the first time I've ever heard/seen anybody refer to a processor power that way. In all my life it has always been the same. Even my techno wiz computer building brother always says the power in the maximum combined form.

Well apparently hes not a wiz because any idiot would know that you don't multiply it by the amount of cores

it just doesn't make sense.... Computers hardly ever run at full capacity and when they do they become sluggish, and if they're at maximum capacity it means they're working quite hard. Makes more sense to tell you how fast a single core is not the whole thing.

I don't think so. I find it easier to know the full power of the processor so I can bear in mind how many of the cores and how much power would be used straight off with less maths... Every forum I've ever been on, bar this one, every member has stated their processor power the way I have here.

Who said anything about the I-7 being 12.8 Ghz?

upload your dxdiag and we'll see how they state the processor speed

Well obviously you did its a quad core running at 3.2 GHz so that MUST be 12.8 in your mind

could you guys just let it go? I agree that MC and Matt are right about it and so do many other. So what if someones doesn't agree? Just let him have his own opinion on it. You've tried, but it's not changing his mind, so there's nothing more that can be done, both parts have proven their point and further arguing wont get you any longer.

Thank God for that! Firestar has already pointed out how useless this is and I think you've matched him. I'm very easily aggrevated - if I'm in an arguement I'm determined not to lose it, even if there are xx times me on the 'other side'. My nature I suppose.
@Master Captain: Could be because of single core usage... Still, I get some programs which tell me exactly that in their system evaluation - but they don't actually pick up the second core in the first place.

what?? it says right in the dxdiag i'm using a dual core processor look
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU     T9300  @ 2.50GHz (2 CPUs), ~2.5GHz

The intel core 2 duo is a dual core processor, if you dont believe me go look it up on intel's website

I kinda saw it... But I mean sometimes you don't get the power of both displayed, you get 'Dual Core' and only the power of 1 core. Sometimes you don't. Sometimes you get 'Dual core' and the combined power. Sometimes you don't get 'Dual core' and the power of 1 core. It depends what diag program you use, DxDiag being the most common I guess, giving you the results you posted.
e.g. I have a simulation game which sees both of my cores and displays their combined power. Another game I have, a racing game, is an older one so only sips power from one core, and only sees that core.

yes, this is the standard thing people use, i have NEVER seen another diagnostic post like dxdiag... ever. Every single one has the processor the same way

Nope, I've already seen my DxDiag twice today, because two games I installed automatically do a DxDiag on their first run. Yes, it is how you say. But this brings you no further towards 'converting' me in an endless arguement which I thought had finished. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to bed (1:10 AM local time here) and to be honest I can't see why you're still trying to prove your point after TWO forum members have tried to intervene and get us to stop. Now, to put it quite bluntly, you shut up, and so will I. But then again, if you keep going on, you just make me more agitated, and then I will explode. (or I'll just ignore you and you'll get very bored of getting no replies) Which unless I do privately, will end up in me getting banned. And you can blame a bad history of parenting on my father's side for my impertinent, annoying, short fused nature. I'm now subject to it myself, and I pray that it stops with me.

ok well just post your dxdiag so we can see. Also we're not realy interested in your life story about parenting and such, and i will keep going until i feel i'm finished

Life story? Oh, you want more?
And what don't you understand? I said that my DxDiags BOTH said the processor power the way YOU say it! What the hell do you want now? You are not going to like what I say if you get on the wrong end of me. That's no threat, that's a damned fact.
To be honest, I think it's quite SAD that you are continuing your little campaing to 'convert' me. It really makes me wonder if you have NOTHING better to do in your life than play silly little arguements on forums. Get a grip, lad!
GOOD <insert 'something' here> NIGHT!
P.S. Thank you Capt Matt! I pronounce you sane.
