I ran the test as you suggested. The result is the same -- 1.8GHz. Where did the 200MHz go? According to the BIOS settings, the powersaving feature is disabled.
Try something that really sucks cpu :)
$ cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep MHz $ md5sum /dev/zero & $ sleep 1 $ cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep MHz $ kill %1 # or whatever
On my Athlon 64 3000+ cpuinfo goes from 1 GHz to 2 GHz.
Does your BIOS report at boot the right Opteron model?
The only problem with frequency I have with SuSE 9.3 is that when I suspend to disk my laptop, after I resume frequency is stuck at the lowest possible frequency and I cannot seem to change it until I reboot, but this is a Centrino 1.7 GHz so not amd64 :).
OK, new BIOS for TYAN K8E. AMD Athlon 64 3000+ Socket 939 is rated for 1.8MHz. This checks out. Previous BIOS reported 1.0GHz. This puzzle has been "solved".
On ASUS K8VSE-Deluxe, the AMD Athlon 64 3000+ Socket 754 is rated at 2.0GHz. This also checks out. Note to self: RTFM!
