More training needed...
My favourite 'only in America' videos are when the cops are chasing someone down the highway, and the cop driving shoots through his own windshield in order to get some shots off in the direction of the suspect. They always seem to be in LA.
The advertised clock speed with all 8 cores isn't 2.4 GHz though. According to Notebookcheck, it's actually 4.2 GHz.
Further info about the CPU: The processor clocks at between 2.4 - 5 GHz and can execute up to sixteen threads simultaneously thanks to Hyper-Threading. The 5 GHz can only be reached using the "Thermal Velocity Boost" which allows one core to boost to 5 GHz (+200 MHz) as long as the CPU temperature is below 50°C. Multiple cores can be boosted +100 MHz below 50°C (not verified).
Sounds like heat is a real issue with this CPU. And all the other Intel CPUs.
