I've trawled lots of forum posts but have not found the answer to my question. Put simply, I can't get my CPU to go over 700MHz.
I've started with a fresh install, set the Pi to turbo mode, enabled the GUI Freq monitor for observing but no matter what I do with the Pi I cant see any evidence its gone over 700MHz.
always returns 700000
Code: Select all
I have installed quake3 and it runs very well and the Pi doesn't crash, but I can't 'see' what the CPU is doing at that moment so I don't know if the governor has engaged.
Can anyone suggests a method that will force the CPU over 700 that allows me to prove the CPU increases the speed in a terminal window or the GUI icon?
I'm scratching my head wondering if my Pi cant possibly operate faster than the default speed.
