CPU Clock speed

By Daz'n'Ash ·
I have a new mobo and CPu. the mobo is ECS (Elite Group) K7S5A and an AMD Athlon XP 1.8 GhZ CPU. Now, since the CPU is 1800 MhZ, why does the CPU clock speed in the bios tell me the clock speed is 1533 MhZ ?
How can I get it to show correct speedof 1800 MhZ?

The CPU speed is not set by default or it may not be detected properly

Boot computer and when the startup screen appears,press the designated key to enter the CMOS panel to Bios

Look for the Chipset Features Setup and highlight the line that notes the CPU speen use the Page Up or Page Down keys to set the cpu speed to correct setting

If you have the motherboard manual it will show you the configuration setting diagram t set the speed and the core voltage also.

1533MHz is the correct CPU clock speed for an Athlon XP 1800 CPU.
The AMD Athlon XP series of processors are "Performance" rated.

That is, per benchmark tests, the AMD XP 1800 has the performance of an Intel P4 1800.

Check out this link to AMD's XP FAQ section.

Remove any spaces from the pasted link.

The Athlon XP1800 actually is designed to run at 1533 MHz. The XP1900 runs at 1600 MHz. This is very old news. For detailed explanations for AMD's
marketing strategies, try the archives at Tom's Hardware Guide. I built a machine with one of these and love it.
