Ask yourself the obvious question: If the processors ran consistently at 2.4Ghz, wouldnt they market them at 2.4Ghz? From Wikipedia: The increased clock rate is limited by the processor's power, current and thermal limits, as well as the number of cores currently in use and the maximum frequency of the active cores. When the workload on the processor ...

The clock speed requirement is meaningless. The software doesn't care how the CPU gets its performance, just how well it performs. Minimum clock speed requirements have been obsolete and close to meaningless for about 10 years now. A typical i5 2.4GHz dual core laptop CPU will have a passmark CPU rating of about 4,000. A typical 2.1GHz Core2 dual core ...

Usually the slow speeds are indicators of a failing drive, so it was a good decision to run chkdsk on it to see what the results will be. However, in order to be sure I'd suggest to run another test but this time instead of the OS tool I will recommend to check in the official manufacturer website if a diagnostic tool is available to use and run a test with ...
