Ideapad 520 i5-8250 query

2018-01-27, 21:23 PM

I recently got Ideadpad 520 151k with below config

I5-8250u, Nvidia Mx150, 8GB DDR4 Ram, 1TB HDD, IPS FHD. 

Had a small question about i5-8250 processor.

As per Intel Clock speed is 1.6Mhz which goes upto 3.4 Mhz in Turbo boost.

I started to unrar a big file to test the proceesor

I was constantly watching task manager and found processor to be running between 1.6 and 2.9 Mhz,  I mean it should had been constant to 3.4mhz to finish the task faster. 

In case I had 7th gen processor at a base clock speed of 2.7,  it would had clocked 2.7 Mhz easily.


My question is,  don't you think that the 7th gen processor will get the job done faster.


Cores might be less in 7th Gen,  but the processing is faster compared to 8th gen.

Need your advice.
