Chameleon

Issue 85: i7 720QM detected WRONG !

Reported by Night Mare, Jun 5, 2011

NOW I"M 100% SURE IT"S BECAUSE OF CHAMELEON RC 5

Let me please add some more info:
I have install 10.6.7 with CH v2 RC5 rev 921/750/older and every one 
of them causing my CPU to NOT get load with the correct CPU 
parameters as shown in CPU-X ( WRONG buspeed and WRONG multiplier ).
it does NOT matter if i boot with specific switches and specific 
values of "cpus","fsb","busratio" in 
boot.plist or using the auto detection of Chameleon(32 and 64bit).

BUT, When I boot using Chameleon v2 RC4 taken from here - THE CPU 
VALUES ARE CORRECT !!! Busratio is 133Mhz and Multiplies is x12 as 
should be !
(Even when I boot iPC 10.5.2 bootcd - the values are correct 
according to CPU-X)

Dev ppl and anyone else - PLEASE HELP ME and take a note that one of 
the latest REV of RC5 is faulty on i7 720QM!!!

attached CPU-X + MST-Tool images under 10.6.7 using CH v2 RC5 Rev921 
booting without any special boot flags.

CPU-X and MSRTools are not reliable, please check your bdmesg.

sorry here it is

Comment 4 by Night Mare, Jun 5, 2011

right now with Rev921 CPU-X is at x1multiplier @ 1075Mhz buspeed...

Does my output of bdmesg tells otherwise ?

your bdmesg shows everything fine. The cpu part and teh SMBIOS part.

i dont' think you truly have a problem.
