2600x not reaching minimum clock speed?

So I'm just noticing that while running apex and pubg with my CPU temp and ussage information up that it shows my frequency is 2021hz? Is this normal? If the stock speed for a 2600x is 3.6hz

Wouldn't it show in game 3600hz? I use the Cam overlay from nzxt.

 

Cpu: 2600x (non oc) STOCK COOLER

RAM: CORSAIR VENGEANCE (3200)

because CPU usage is too low? Neither games are that CPU heavy to need full speed.

Ok. I just wanted to make sure that was normal every now and then itll spike up to 80% ussage so I thought it was odd. I'm still trying to figure out gaming on PC 

Thanks

Does clock speed increase when that happens? It might have some power saving thing where clock speed doesn't change until it's actually needed. You can test if it works as supposed by running benchmark or stress test.

And does it go up under benchmark load?

1997hz - 2020hz is all.

Try clearing CMOS and updating BIOS. If those don't help, contact both MSI and AMD.
