The newer desktop CPU's may have power-saving features (like laptops)
so if there is no load, they use less power and when load goes up
their performance will scale up to 100%.

My friend's laptop has Mobile AMD Athlon 64 which works usually at 800
MHz, but when you have some task for it - it goes to 1.8 GHz - it's
full speed, so don't worry about MHz - worry only about the benchmarks
your CPU is able or unable to pass.
