We have published a short video looking at the basics of CPU cores and clock speed using the time honored tradition of a car analogy.
Actual CPU Speeds – What You See Is Not Always What You Get
Clock speeds on modern Intel processors are not straight-forward, a fact that is attested to by the several articles we have published on that topic in recent years. This can lead to confusion over what CPU to pick when configuring a new computer, especially for higher-end workstations and servers with high core count processors. I am hoping this blog post will shed a little light on that subject, and help readers be better able to select the right CPU for their needs.
