So its not just me .Good to know . Mine friend also had same issue with new windows update ! Old version was reporting correctly but this new one reporting differently xD Task manager is busted !
 
Windows should not be using MHz as the unit for memory speed unless that's the correct unit. It sounds like Microsoft might have finally gotten around to making Task Manager correctly show the clock speed, rather than trying to confuse it with the transfer speed because it looks like a higher number, which most consumers equate with better.

DDR memory is rated with both a MHz clock speed that the parts run at, and MT (megatransfers) for it's actual transfer speed, since DDR memory is essentially getting two transfers done with each clock cycle.

While the MT speed is usually the equivalent you might see for SDR memory at that rate, MHz is the wrong unit. One thing Microsoft could do is simply omit the unit, as many vendors do on their packaging.

Memory is usually advertised without the unit, as many consumers would just become confused. Once you add the unit, your 3200 memory should be listed as 3200 MT/s, or 1600 MHz.
