Several points to clarify first:
1. cpufrequtils is deprecated. cpupower package is its successor, please use
this one instead:
cpupower frequency-info
2. /proc/cpuinfo may not give you the real frequency the CPU is running at,
better use:
cpupower monitor
cpupower monitor -m Mperf
(use cpupower monitor --help for the manpage)
There you should get the frequency the HW really run at over a period of
(one sec by default), not the frequency the kernel might think it's running
This does not work on really old HW, but should run on reasonable new one.
3. I am guessing now. The BIOS may have lied to the OS for performance reasons
or it even may plain wrong.

So the max cpu speed is 1701 MHz as indicated on openSUSE 12.3 and not the
random speeds shown in openSUSE 13.1.
This probably is the speed the kernel thinks it's running at, please double
check with cpupower monitor what the real max speed is (should already be avail
with all you need in 12.3 as well).
