Bootcamp Gave My Macbook an Overclock?

 Share

I have a Mid 2013 MacBook Air. I got it with stock specs, so the processor was clocked at 1.3GHz. When I loaded Windows onto it with Bootcamp, I noticed that the cpu usage was high for some reason. When I open task manager, I see the name of my cpu at the top, and it says "@1.3GHz", but the info below says "Base speed: 1.90 GHz" and it's turboing even higher than that, staying around 2.3-2.5.

Is this normal? I didn't mess with any overclocking on anything I can hear the fan spinning and the exhaust is warm to the touch but not hot.weird.PNG.ba3e1eb474f6f3aee4f13f3fd0d50b19.PNG

I didn't think macs had the ability to overclock... It's probably windows, task manager says I'm running at 4.3GHz when I'm at 3.7.

If you use CPUZ does it tell you the same thing?

So far, CPUZ refuses to load. I have the portable app version running on a usb. Loads up to 65% and then just stops, task manager says its not responding. I also tried HWiNFO, but that crashes with no error or warning. So I can't really answer it.

 

I think theres a database for my iCloud Drive that's trying to populate itself and that's what's causing such high cpu usage.
