Intel Core2Duo T7200 speed not right ?

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts



I have an Alienware M9750 laptop and I have everything working except my second GPU (I dont expect that to work anytime soon, but 1 is good enough I dont need SLI for OS X), Jack Sense, and my CPU (the aforementioned T7200) is only running at 997MHz (with only 1 core I believe (used CPU-X)) instead of the proper ~ 2.0GHz. I tried the most recent VoodooTSCsync.kext from voodooproject.org but that did not change anything.


does anyone have this processor working at full capacity, this is really the only thing wrong with my system at this point and while it is not slow by any means i do noticed that things take a bit longer that they should (obviously considering i've got about a 1/2 CPU).


Any help is greatly appreciated, Thanks.
