Question about processor speed

When I bought my W530 the specs said "Intel Core i7-3740QM Processor (6M Cache, up to 3.70 GHz)"

Under syste settings, however it states "Intel Core i7-3740QM CPU @ 2.7 GHz"


Why the difference in speed?

Re: Question about processor speed

"up to 3.70 GHz" is marketing-speak by Intel


It means the CPU clock speed is 2.7GHz, but in certain ideal conditions (turbo boost) it can go up to 3.70 GHz.
