I have no idea what the 1.83 Ghz is for...wish that was FSB
See, I was pretty sure that P4s didn't come in 1.83, so that just REALLY makes it more confusing. I have no idea why it says 1.83 underneath the 3.06. And yea, I wish it was the FSB , but it does have a 533mhz FSB, which is enough for a laptop (for now anyway).
Windows XP automatically slows the clock speed to conserve battery power. Read about profiles in XP to force full clock all the time.
Yep, thats what is going on. Confused the crap out of me too the first time I saw it, until I did a little digging on the internet.
No other posters were flamed, ridiculed, persecuted, belittled, berated, judged or otherwise in the making of the above-posted reply. It is with respect all are asked to observe this and to provide the same courtesy bestowed upon those who have posted and those who will post. Yada, Yada, doublespeak and so forth!
Yeah, that's the problem with the P4m's... it takes an assload of processing intensive work to get them to come off the minimum speed. I never did look into changing profiles with mine, but I'll keep that in mind for my next laptop... that shit pissed me off.
