If we're going to include this table[edit]

If we're going to include this table, we should probably also include the info from the bogomips FAQ #3.5 -- i.e., that it can be double this, for some systems. (e.g., an Athlon 900 will be around 1795 bogomips, not 900.) I'd write it myself, but I don't claim to understand exactly what they're saying...

Good suggestion. I don't say that I know BogoMips, but I'm probably just more audacious. So I added the change. But then as the BogoMips mini-Howto maintainer, this isn't entirely unfounded, I guess :-). Wim van Dorst 22:51, 2005 Mar 11 (UTC) PS. Good suggestions should not be unsigned (neither should bad ones).

Core Duo[edit]

1594 bogomips for Intel Core Duo T2250, 1.73GHz in HP nx7400 [EY508ES] notebook

That sounds low compared to other "modern" CPUs (given that it stops around the P3 / Xeon) in the list in the main article... unless it's running at low Speedstep. At full whack, that's 0.92 per clock. At low speed (800mhz?), 1.99 per clock. Hmmm. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.46.180.56 (talk) 03:21, 10 April 2008 (UTC)

New kernels[edit]

With 2.6 series kernels the bogomips ratio scheme has changed and I think the article should be updated. <unsigned>

  • No, it didn't. Read the mini-Howto for the details. Wim van Dorst (Talk) 16:31, 3 December 2006 (UTC).

what is a jiffy switch?[edit]

I'm an experienced compiler writer, x86 assembly programmer, and electronics designer but I understand little of the example code and documentation of the "How are BogoMIPS computed?" section.

Perhaps the article should explain some of the linux/unix/kernel jargon terms (my guess) before using them!?

Location of delay.c[edit]

"i386 architecture delay_loop is implemented in /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/lib/delay.c" - Was this moved to /usr/src/linux/arch/x86/lib/delay.c? Don't see the i386 version in the 3.4.1 kernel I've been poking around in. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Derekmceachern (talkcontribs) 20:34, 20 November 2012 (UTC)
