CPU speed calculation on Intel mother board
Posted on 2014-03-19
Recently I have found out one hosting company offering 8000M CPU VPS server
and so I wonder why there is existing 8G CPU ?
As I remember from max Intel process speed is range from 3.3 to 3.7G today.
So my question is coming out for CPU speed
On general intel 3.7GHZ computer mother board, one socket L can allow only one CPU chip mount on and for example, one CPU chip could have 4 core or 8 core but
the overall computer CPU speed is still 3.7GZHZ regardless of how many core is in one
My first question is what I say above is correct or not ( if we don't consider CPU
bus speed such as 1333MHZ) ? The number of CPU core in one CPU chip is
for allowing how many process or thread is running , for example, 16 thread for 4 core
which mean 16*4 process or thread running at the same time or max multi-tasking in one CPU chip with the same speed of 3.7G HZ, Right ?
Sometimes, I have seen there are two socket L on one mother board. Why is it ?
Whether the additional socket L will allow increase the overall computer CPU speed by 2* socket CPU speed =2*3.7GHZ=7.4GHZ which is closer to the hosting company offer
8GHZ CPU VPS server ?
What is different for overall computer CPU speed calculation from no of CPU socket and CPU cores consideration ?
Question-3: Some intel CPU device spec has thread feature such 16 or 8 threads. Is that for server CPU to handle how many process or thread at the same time in one core of CPU ?
Laptop/Personal computer is seldom to use thread feature intel CPU , Right ?
