cpuid and frequency/cores


I have a question about the instruction __cpuid if the processor is overclocked or some core disabled does the returned value from cpuid will change ?

I have disabled 2 core from my processor and the value dont appear to change

this perhaps a dumd question I'm sorry...

I'm worried because I dont know why the frequency are showed after a call to cpuid (for example : v3 @ 3.20GHz on my machine)


please see the code snipet from thomas, its what I'm talking about

thanks guys

I think using WinAPI will be more useful to you (or at least easier to use): https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/aa373184%28v=vs.85%29.aspx
