    3 GHz dual core processor - 3 GHz per core or 1.5 GHz per core?

    When it comes to multicore processors, if the frequency is rated as 3GHz, does that mean it is 3 GHz per core or 3 GHz divided by the number of cores.

    Like in the title, for a 3 GHz dual core, would it be 3 GHz per core or 3 GHz / 2 cores = 1.5 GHz per core?

    Thanks for your help.
