So this happens a lot with my Pi (model 1 B 512MiB RAM, vanilla Xbian, etc, etc) but i never really bother to ask (i think? i cant find a thread here where i might have made this question already).

My CPU governor has been set to Performance since way back... so this is not new.

When i try to get the current clock rate/speed of the CPU/GPU and RAM, using xbian-stats i get:

Runnin xbian-stats command...

Governor: performance
Memory: 512MB (368MB ARM, 144MB GPU)
Min Freq: 700Mhz | 250Mhz | 500Mhz
Max Freq: 1000Mhz | 500Mhz | 500Mhz
Voltages: +6, 1.200 | 0, 1.200

18:29:14 700Mhz 250Mhz 0Mhz 50.31C (50.84C) 473 0 0^C

But in Kodi system info menu is reported my OC @ 1Ghz correctly (even the Bogomips reported are the expected ones at that clock rate)...

so i googled this and i got:


sudo cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/cpuinfo_cur_freq



cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_cur_freq

So my question is... is the unit running @ 700Mhz stock or 1Ghz OC like i've configure it? I get different results with different commands Tongue

Do you really have set governor to Performance?

sudo cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_governor

shows you the current governor

Well i know the current governor already lol.... but sometimes i get values like the ones iv'e posted in the initial one...


sudo cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_governor
