What does it mean by 2 processors

HP Recommended
HP xw6400 Workstation
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Hello there!

 

I already know that the Hp xw6400 Workstation has 2 processors but Windows says I have 2.33ghz (2 processors) does this mean it has 2 2.33ghz processors to make 4.66ghz or does it mean 2 processors make the 2.33ghz?

Hi,

Each one of the two processors is 2.33 Ghz. It is not possible to add the speed to make 4.66 Ghz. The speed will always be the same. However they can work simultaneously to get work done faste, at 2.33 Ghz.

So each processor will work at 2.33Ghz.

 

Hope it helps,

David
