    2.30GHz is the base frequency of the CPU which Windows will detect.

    2.80GHz is the maximum frequency when Intel Turbo Boost gets turned on. The CPU will only reach this frequency when it is under heavy load. To save energy and decrease heat production the CPU rarely goes above the base frequency.
