A really gimmic
ey feature found on dodgy PC cases. A series of seven segment led
s that allegedly displays the machine's clock-speed
, but actually display whatever they've been jumper
. Often has a passthrough for the turbo switch
to further the illusion that it's showing the actual clock speed. It will even count up and down like a pinball machine
, even though an actual clock speed changes in under a microsecond
But hey, it's appearances that matter, right?
