I'll attach a screenshot but apparently I have a -2MHz processor ?
Created attachment 48728 [details]
whats /proc/cpuinfo look like?
Sounds like it's not populating a "cpu mhz" at all
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...)
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
I'll kluge up the display to just show "undetectable" or something for the
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
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
