Hello dear,

I have a Samsung laptop;
According to SIW,
CPU: Intel Core i5 M460 @ 2.53GHz
CPU socket: Socket 989 rPGA
Max CPU speed: 4000Mhz

What does the Max CPU speed means?

Most likely it means the laptop runs most of the time at about the lower speed you referenced, and that it may also run at 4GHz for short periods of time if an application can benefit from the higher speed.

However, it is likely thermally limited to protect the CPU, and if the CPU is too hot it won't speed up to the higher speed.

I fully agree with John on this issue.
