Re: [opensuse-kernel] kernel & BIOS report (incorrectly?) different current/available speeds for overclocked CPU

Then you are totally on your own, sorry.

True, but we should still be reporting the real speed if the hardware does.

the problem exists with any/all speeds above the 'stock' 2.8 GHz ....
if, given the responses above and below you're actually interested in
more data, i can provide coremark benchmarks in both cases showing
virtually identical results in both cases. i.e., despite the OS's
report that the cpu speed is "2.8GHz", it's actually still at the
BIOS-reported 3.7 GHZ.

To the original poster: In an environment that is based around sharing
and open standards, anonymous emails don't encourage people to respond

hardly anonymous ... but, huh? anonimity justifies rudeness? you need
to be "encouraged" to politely respond to community members (lets
forget paying customers, for the moment) trying to be helpful?

To answer your other question: even if the tool reported your CPU speed
accurately, any problems you report with that configuration will be
ignored. The hardware would be operating out of spec and any guarantees
that the software would be operating properly go right out the window.

so overclocking of any kind in UNsupported by *suse and will be
ignored? that'll be news to quite a few folks, i'd presume ...
