Sparkylinux on msi u100
« on: February 16, 2018, 12:56:42 pm »
Hi, some days ago I installed it on my old netbook (MSI U100 1gbram). It seems to me it become faster than before.
But I'd like to ask you a question about cpu turbomode.
My cpu-netbook has been overclocked, it went to 1,8 GHz by CPU-Z with winxp, now on linux cpupower said me it's only 1.6 GHz.
Is there any software I can use to check  exactly cpu frequency?
Thank you.
