Using two processors with different clock speeds

Last Modified: 2010-04-26
Dear Experts,

I have 2 P-II processors that I put on a dual Slot 1 board. One processor runs at 400MHz and the other runs at 350MHz. Will they be processing at 750MHz? And what issues do I need to consider here?

It's because I've heard of processors doing tasks in a parallel manner so I was thinking I could get more muscle than just using one CPU.
