Description Alan Cox 2002-03-16 16:03:49 EST
I'll attach a screenshot but apparently I have a -2MHz processor ?

Comment 2 Adrian Likins 2002-03-17 17:55:45 EST
whats /proc/cpuinfo look like?

Sounds like it's not populating a "cpu mhz" at all
Comment 3 Adrian Likins 2002-03-17 18:25:00 EST
yup, must be it. All 116 WinChip register show as -2. 

any other way to get the mhz of these chips? (or any chips
that dont set X86_FEATURE_TSC from what I can tell...)
Comment 4 Alan Cox 2002-03-17 20:02:03 EST
It does indeed have no TSC support.

For non TSC capable chips you need to know the magic divider per chip (or
not display strange things like -3)

For the IDT winchip series its bogomips/2

Comment 5 Adrian Likins 2002-03-18 05:09:22 EST
I'll kluge up the display to just show "undetectable" or something for the
approriate cases.

Are there docs any docs anywhere on what the proper per chip magic is? Already
to handle alpha/ia64/sparc/s390 differently, adding winchip/cyrix/k5/etc isnt
too much of
a stretch.
Comment 6 Alan Cox 2002-03-18 06:46:56 EST
If the table I has is still correct, then for non TSC

Winchip: bogomips/2 nearest 25/33MHz
i486: bogomips * 2 nearest 25/33Mhz
AMD 5x86 without tsc, bogomips *2 nearest 25/33Mhz
Cyrix 486SLC  bogoips * 3 , nearest 25/33Mhz
Nexgen: bogomips * 4/3, nearest 25/33Mhz
