Display your CPU's true speed
Authored by: spacehaven on Dec 04, '03 11:55:33AM

I too had a wrong value from this -- my 1ghz TiBook reported 667. A few google searches and a few failed PMU reset attempts later, it finally worked, and it's reporting my speed as 999999997.

I read somewhere that there's actually a problem with the PMU that if it thinks the CPU is speed x, it won't allow the system to go faster than that speed. I don't know if it's my imagination, but my system seems much zippier now!
