If it is not running, kde->System->Desktop Applet->Kpowersave, right
click on the taskbar icon and choose set active scheme->performance.
If kpowersave is running you will have a little ac powercord in the
taskbar.

I experienced this same thing on an Athlon 64 2000Mhz, it is nothing
more than acpi throttling the cpu to conserve power. If you left
click the icon it will bring up a monitor window, then launch a couple
of applications and watch the speed increase to meet demand.
