Hi Masahiko

I am not sure why the kernel is reporting a slower CPU speed than what
you actually have but perhaps there is some scaling going on? The OS is
throttling down the CPU when its idle? I am of course just guessing here
but can you look and see if cpudyn is installed? or a similar software


Did the output of of cat /proc/cpuinfo occur right after boot? take a
few measurements at different times to confirm the speed.

Maybe you can even set it to the right speed by installing cpudyn or

Also paste the output of grep -i CPU /boot/config*, it might be useful
to see whats going on.
