Is this normal? I have a 2.2 ghz processor not a 2.0. How do I fix this?
You can't fix that.
What were you doing when you looked at the CPU speed? What Windows version were you using?
Windows could have been thrown by the speed stepping technology in the CPUs. If so, it's not really a problem.
Download cpuid it will show speed and speedsteppig speed
I'm using a retail version of Windows 7 Professional.
I just reinstalled Windows 7 and it is still 2.0 ghz processor in bootcamp. Should I take it to my Apple store so they can give me a new laptop? Something gotta be wrong.
You fail reading. Download this, take a screen shot and post.
I would recommend the above too & see what CPUID says about the CPU.
Well there you go, you just answered your own question. You have a 2.2ghz processor, and there is nothing wrong with your computer.
You have the correct CPU. Windows reports the speed the CPU speed are running at the time you look and CPUs from both Intel and AMD have clocked themselves to slower speeds to use less power when its not needed. Its a waste of battery and power to have the CPU running full speed all the time so the CPU will throttle itself to how much it is being used. So if you fire up something that uses 100% of the CPU you will see the correct speeds, perhaps faster than 2.2 ghz as i7 supports turbo mode which will allow the CPU to run faster than rated for some tasks.
Lol I swear to god I saw 2.0 ghz processor yesterday. Thanks guys for all your help.
