Upgrade Windows Azure processor from 1.6 GHz to minumum 3.0 Ghz
1.6 GHz virtual processor is so small and this is main problem to migrate my apps to ms cloud,
I would like to choices other than 1.6 GHz CPU.(Just like AmazonEC2)
Great feedback!! We are always looking for feedback on how to improve our virtual machine offering to allow for more complex workloads. This helps us prioritize!

2.x GHZ is causing my remote visual studio develoment environment to be slow as h311.

If you check processor type in a VM, you will see that Azure uses 8 core AMD processors with 2.X Ghz speed of each core.

The amount of 'gigahertz' doesn't say anything about the performance of a CPU.

We're heavily dependent on a legacy single threaded component as part of our app, multi-core machines are of no use. High performance single core machines would be of great value.

We agree... here's an R benchmark we did running on an medium instance. The processing times we are seeing in R for our Big Data project is not sufficient and forces us to scale across instances unnecessarily... Please increase CPU clock speed at least in large instances, additional cores and larger instances is second on our wish list. http://pastebin.com/ukEHybft

The option to pay more for faster processors would be quite. In one example, I have had to reduce the number of iterations on a password hashing algorithm to get within acceptable login/register delays of a couple seconds.
Ok, even though 2.4 GHz
Yes please. My application is highly parallelised and even an Extra Large worker role is woefully under powered for what I need.
