Clock Speed


Alternately referred to processor speed and clock speed may be the speed the microprocessor executes each shake of the time or each coaching. The processor takes rounds or a fixed quantity of time clicks. The quicker the processor and the quicker the lamps price or even the quicker it may perform instructions.

Time Rates are often decided in GHz, 1 GHz addressing 1 thousand rounds per second, or in MHz and 1 MHz address 1 million rounds per second. This metric is most useful when comparing processors within the same family, holding constant other features that may impact performance.

Video card and CPU manufacturers commonly select their highest performing units from a manufacturing batch and set their maximum clock rate higher, fetching a higher price.
