I use AMD chips all the time. To my understanding of how AMD chips work AMD
calls it a 2500 because its suppose to be equal to an INTEL chip that runs
as 2500 even though the actual clock shows it slower. They started doing
that with the XP chips which Sempron replaced.

I have a desktop unit with a sempron 2500+ to play with.
doing "more /proc/cpuinfo" indicates cpu Mhz as1044 not the 2500

I am familiar with cpuspeed. doing ps ax | grep cpuspeed resulting in 
I did service cpuspeed start. No errors reported.
ps ax | grep cpuspeed resulted in nothing.

I was going to do "killall -SIGUSR1 cpuspeed" to attempt to get 2500+
cpu speed.

I am compiling wine right now so I havent gotten back into the BIOS.
Is there another way to get the FULL cpu speed.
