1 clock cycler per second = 1Hz. --> 5.7GHz = 5 700 000 000 clock cycles per second. Now we are talking about what that 5.7GHz means, because that was the original question. Right?

Now u said that

but wait.. u just said that the 5.7GHz means the amount of clock cycles per second.. So how can it mean the amount of clock cycles per second, but not be the clock speed of the cpu?

Ok final answer it says 5.7GHz cause some poeple measure it like that they add up the two cores, 2.2+2.2=4.4 then because its a AMD it gets a bonus, and becauce of cache it gets a bonus and it comes out to 5.7 GHZ ITS A SIMPLE MEASUREMENT OF HOW YOUR CPU RANKS AGANIST OTHER CPUS. Thats it... Its called a power rating. __________________ Main Rig: I7 920 CPU, 6 Gigs ram 5870 GPU M17X Laptop 2.8 Ghz Dual Core, 4870 Radeon
