Answer

VBA cannot do that directly, but you can invoke the Windows Management Interface.

Please see the information from http://www.asap-utilities.com/excel-tips-detail.php?categorie=9&m=78 (copied below)


Sub ProcessorSpeed()
' shows the processor name and speed of the computer
  Dim MyOBJ                              As Object
  Dim cpu                                As Object
  Set MyOBJ = GetObject("WinMgmts:").instancesof("Win32_Processor")
  For Each cpu In MyOBJ
        MsgBox(cpu.Name.ToString + " " + cpu.CurrentClockSpeed.ToString + " Mhz", vbInformation)
  Next
End Sub
