I was hoping to get some help from some experts here. I just bought the emachine M5310 it is supposed to have an AMD 2400+ in it. When I check the bios it says it is running at 1800 Mhz. From everything I have read a 2400+ is supposed to be running at 2.0Ghz. So I call emachines tech support and they told me since it is a barton core it runs at 1.8Ghz but has the processing power of the 2.0Ghz part. Well this sounded like BS to me so I decided to benchmark it with sisoftware Sandra 2003. When I did this It came no where near the scores of an AMD 2400+. It more evenly matched the AMD 2200+, which is what I expected since it runs at 1.8Ghz. So what do you think? Am I crazy or what? All the other machines in the store that are advertised as 2400+ run at 2.0 Ghz. Need help as soon as possible as I oly have 14 days to return it.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thank You
