Default AMD Phenom(tm) II X4 955 Processor runs only between 800-2700 Mhz

Hi,
i have fedora 14 and since i updated my mainboard, i recognized,
that the cpufreq max is not right.

The cpu is clocked at 4.000 Mhz but in fedora i only get 2700 max.

Any ideas?
Greetings,
Nine

I have a similar problem with my AMD Athlon64 3700+.
It is supposed to run at 2.4GHz, but I can only run it at
about 800 MHz. So your situation is not as bad as mine

What command are you using to get this number?
lshw-gui shows this for the first part of the cpu info.

Hi,

cat
cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/bios_limit

and i can see it as max cpufreq.

i am a bit confused. windows shows it correctlxy and the linux system
is as slow as 2700 MHZ

I'm having a similar problem. My Athlon X6 1090T is overclocked from
3200 to 3700, yet appears to be running at 800mhz. I've stopped
/etc/init.d/cpufreq, but where the monitor usually shows 3200 when
it's stopped, now it's showing 800.

How do you manually set the cpu speed? I've tried the cpuspeed
program, but I'm not sure how to use it. In order to fix the speed to
a certain frequency, you have to use the -a option:

-a <AC file>
Sets the ACPI AC adapter state file and tells the program to set
the CPU cores to minimum speed when the AC adapter is disconnected.
(This is the default but is changeable by the '-D' option below).

Where does this AC file come from? This is my desktop, not a laptop,
so there is no other option than to use the AC adapter.

If I start /etc/init.d/cpuspeed, it will control the CPU, but it never
really seems to go above 800mhz, even when it should be necessary.

Thanks,
Alex

From the output of your /proc/cpuinfo, it shows
your cpuspeed to be 3200.00 MHz, not 800MHz.
Your bogomips is stated to be 7449.1 mips.
Where are you seeing 800MHz? From a benchmark
or other system file?

Contrasting your /proc/cpuinfo with my old unicore Athlon64:

The little cpuspeed icon in the icon bar at the top shows it, and so
does gkrell. If I shut down cpuspeed, it shows 3200 in all places, but
there's still the disparity with the "Detected" line from dmesg.

I haven't isolated it yet, but for some reason sometimes gkrell and
the cpuspeed icon shows 800 even when /proc/cpuinfo shows otherwise.

And you don't have cpuspeed running? Is it any different if you boot
into single-user mode and rule out any programs or other drivers that
may be influencing the CPU speed?

Thanks,
Alex
