If that were true, wouldn't /proc/cpuinfo report the same as cpuinfo_cur_freq? It clearly does not! The heart of my question still remains unsolved. I did uncover this tool that appears to somehow report "true frequency", but I'm not sure it works correctly. It provides some sources for its algorithm, but doesn't really provide a great explanation for the discrepancy.

Now your post makes more sense, but what about the results I'm getting? They don't jive with your explanation. still confused

Hmm I'm not sure what you mean by the realtime and max speeds, seeing as how the cpuinfo_cur_freq reports a higher number than the supposed "max" that /proc/cpuinfo does. Can you elaborate on that point?

comment Change the scale of the bar graph in htop
I was under the mistaken impression that all the "used" memory was the bars, and that it just changed color as it got higher, like a VU meter on a stereo. : \ My mistake!

Actually, using the monochromatic color scheme makes it a bit nicer, since the Used memory (|) is very obviously different from the Buffers (#) and Cached (*). I think I'll just go with that and call it good. Thanks for the explanation!
