[Ask Help] Why my X61 Core2DuoT9300 only read clock speed 1.2Ghz max from the capasity @2.5Ghz

2011-03-12, 13:05 PM

Dear lenovo comunity

 

i really need helps for my issue here as i already looking lots information on the net but cannot found the answer:

 

I have Thinkpad X61 with spec like this after benchmark with AIDA64/Everest:

 

Intel Core2duo T9300 (Peryn) @2.50Ghz

Cpu clock :  1200Mhz (original 2500Mhz)

Cpu multiplier: 6x

Cpu FSB : 199Mhz (original 200Mhz)

Memory Bus: 332.5 mhz

L2 cache : 6Mb

Motherboard: lenovo Thinkpad X61

HD: 250Gb , Hitachi SATA 5400rpm , 8mb buffer

bios: BIOS Type Phoenix (04/18/08)

 

 

 

This laptop using Vista as the OS. 

 

Previously I  wonder why this laptop performance is quite similar with my old intel-P3 500mhz , very slow

so after benchmark with software i just know that my laptop runs half than the peak performance : @1.2Ghz compare to the maks capasity @2.5Ghz , so i already knew this is causes of the slow performance.

 

I had another laptop toshiba T5500,  each of the cpu core read with maximum @1.5Ghz , so i think there is something Big Miss here as my X61 compare to old toshiba could say 2 times slower 

 

 

So i hope any friends  could help guide me how to set the clock speed into the original as should be

i try to login into the bios but cannot see any option to change the speed

 

 

Thank you somuch 

 

 

Rgds

conclusion:

 

The clock speed will be lower than normal speed if i plug off the batery and use 65w Adapter

 

When i use my adapter (65w) along with the Battery the clock cpu core back to normal (2.5Ghz)  , another solution if we want to use Adapter without Battery plug in. we have to change the adapter to 90w series

 

case closed now

 

TQ

your bios is old, and may not recognize the newer cpu correctly. Try updating the bios

Sounds like a power setting issue or an old BIOS like richk suggests. Make sure you set it to Max Performance, and update the BIOS.
