    Intel Core i7 860 Frequency Discrepancy



      I've got a Dell XPS 8100 with an Intel Core i7 860 processor. Yesterday I ran the Intel Processor Identification Utility and the reported clock speed was shown as 2.92 GHz against an expected clock speed of 2.80 GHz.


      I have run the utility a number of times and the result is always the same - 2.92 GHz. Can anyone explain this ?


      Obviously, I'm not complaining, I'm just curious ;-)
