How do I find out my processor speed?

Check how many cores your processor has.
  1. Press ⊞ Win + R to open the Run dialog box.
  2. Type dxdiag and press ↵ Enter . Click Yes if prompted to check your drivers.
  3. Find the "Processor" entry in the System tab. If your computer has multiple cores, you'll see the number in parentheses after the speed (e.g. 4 CPUs).

What is used to measure the speed of the processor?

Clock speed is measured in units of cycles per second, which is called a Hertz (Hz). Computer boards and CPUs run at rates of millions and billions of Hertz, megahertz (MHz) and gigahertz (GHz). A good speed for a PC microprocessor in 2004 was 4 GHz.
