low AMD athlon XP2200+ speed


...so i open up info center and i click on processor and what do i see.....my mobile AMD Athlon XP2200+(in xp clocks around ~1.8 GHz) clocking at 530.048 MHz...is this normal?? its in my compaq presario 2176RS labtop. i thought to look there in the first place cause my cpu fan never went full speed in linux(FC2). any clue if this is normal for this chipset?

Re: cpuspeed

There is a cpu daemon that runs that helps scale the processor back so it does not consume all the battery. I have it turned off on mine (AMD) laptop, when running on the powercord. I will have to remember what the name of it is.
