You have been subscribed to a public bug:

I can not set the processor speed to its maximum. I have a centrino duo
laptop (hp nc6320 with T2300E cpu)

I can explain that with an example (on cpu1, the same for cpu0):

cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/cpufreq/cpuinfo_max_freq

cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/cpufreq/scaling_max_freq

echo "1667000" > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/cpufreq/scaling_max_freq

cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/cpufreq/scaling_max_freq
1333000  <---this should be 1.6Ghz!! 

On installation phase (ubuntu 6.06) while still in live mode, the single
cpu recognised is able to reach maximum speed. I have an ipw3945
wireless card (seems to affect this-(?))
