The processor has a speed of anything from anywhere between 2.2 GHz to 3.2 GHz. Turbo Boost technology that Intel i7 quad core processor comes with allows the machine to automatically adjust its speed, depending on the tasks and workload. While it is a fast machine, it doesn't use up much power when working on easier tasks. So Acer Aspire V3 provides a great balance between power consumption and performance.
