Is this cpu display display correct?
In 2.4.0 Beta status/dashboard, the cpu G4560T is rated @ 2.9Ghz but the display says 2.8Ghz. Any reason ?
Must have updated the dashboard. CPU frequency is more reflective of the CPU.
That just means powerd was enabled and doing its job, throttling the CPU down if it didn't need to operate at full speed.
Refreshing the dashboard a couple times would drive up the CPU load and probably made it throttle back up to full speed.
