I have X58 motherboard and a i7 CPU and I was wondering if SpeedStep was supported under Linux (I'm new to Linux) I'm running openSUSE and I have no way to see my voltage, CPU multiplier, or temperature to confirm if SpeedStep is working. I would hate it if my CPU was running full speed 24/7, especially with a power hungry monster like i7. I did locate a panel in openSUSE that shows me my current clock (it seems stuck at 1.596MHz, very inaccurate!). I tried gkrellm but all it shows me is CPU usage. Is there any sort of utility for Linux like CPU-Z under Windows?
No announcement yet.
Is speedstep supported under Linux? (X58+i7)
