clock tripling

The process used on some older 486 computers to triple the internal processing speed of the CPU while maintaining the manufacturer's original clock speed for I/O transfers. In most cases, clock-tripling would normally yield a lower than 100 percent overall system performance boost (e.g., 30 to 70 percent), not an actual tripling of the clock speed as suggested by the name.

See also clock speed.
