Good morning everyone,
My laptop has 8GB of RAM memory, with a declared speed of 1600Mhz. The problem is that if I go to the task manager, the effective ram speed is 800Mhz. Can someone help me solving this problem?
Thank you in advance.

Your I/O bus clock is 800 MHZ.
Your data rate is 1600 mt/s (megatransfer per second).
Your peak transfer rate is 12800 MB/s.
It takes 2 cycles to read the rising and falling edge of memory.
Because the hertz is a measure of cycles per second, and no signal cycles more often than every other transfer, describing the transfer rate in units of MHz is technically incorrect, although very common.
