Since you are running a Microsoft Operating System on your RPi you might get more knowledgeable advice from a forum specialising in that OS?

Are you measuring clock speed under load? The firmware will drop the CPU to 600 if there isn't any requriement for more speed, so unless the system is loaded up, you will only see 600 at idle.

Strangely enough this is the forum on Window 10 for IOT.

As already mentioned the clock speed automatically decreases to 600 MHz to conserve energy when the system is idle. If you are experiencing low clock speeds under load with a corresponding performance loss, you may have a power supply that is unable to supply the correct voltage at the required current for the higher clock speeds.
