Wrong processor speed in AMD Athlon 64 Mobile 3000+

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.perform_maintain (More info?)

Windows XP Home (SP2) is not able to show the proper processor speed.

Whatever tool I try to use, it doesn't recognize it.

I've got the Rightmark CPU Clock Utility 1.2
I've got the Speedswitch XP
I've got the AMD Power Scheme (Win 2000 kompability mode)
.... and I've got the PowerNow Dashboard running on the same time. Alas, same
thing. Nothing seems to help.

The CPU Clock and the PowerNow Dashboard shows the correct speed, though.
But noway, the Windows XP doesn't want to play along.

As far as I know, Microsoft support only shows an article written more than
two (2) years ago.

Any comments?

    AMD's processor speeds are deceptive. For instance, my old 1700+ was really
    only a 1.43 gig processor.

    FWIW, JAX

    Typical of AMD processors.
