Specs: Windows 8

I was just wondering, if you have a processor listed as four cores @ 3 GHz, does that mean 3 GHz per core, or 3GHz in total processing (0.75 GHz per core)?

✔ Best Answer
A 3 GHZ CPU is 3 GHZ per core. There is no relationship between clock speed and the number of cores. Except for some unusual situations an 8 core CPU is a waste. Typical workloads cannot even use 4 cores to full advantage.
