Explains the relationship between the base frequency of the processor and the motherboard.
Upon changing motherboards, the base frequency of the processor is slightly different (for example, from 3.58 GHz and 3.6 GHz). Why is this happening?
The processor base frequency is dependent on the motherboard clock generator. Changing the motherboard with the same processor could result in the base frequency varying slightly due to different motherboard configurations.
The base frequency of the processor= (Clock speed for motherboard) X (internal CPU clock rate).
