[OLD VERSION] Processor operates at lower MHz than it has, Macbook Air

Recommended Posts

Hello to all forum users!


I tested my Macbook Air, Early 2014 model and found that processor operates @ 1000 MHz instead of 1400 MHz, that this Macbook has.

Is it ok? Or is there a way to make it run at "full speed", let's say it that way.

This is likely an issue with Novabench actually. Yoyour CPU is probably running at the correct speed. Sometimes it is read wrong by Novabench.
