I want to speed up it. And it looks I should change /boot/boot.script, but I didn’t find that file:

It's selecting a cpufreq to match operating system load...

cat /proc/cpuinfo is only a one time valid value for cpu speed, run
"cpufreq-info" and put the device under load..

  current policy: frequency should be within 275 MHz and 720 MHz.
                  The governor "ondemand" may decide which speed to use
                  within this range.
  current CPU frequency is 720 MHz.

are you saying that the kernel dynamically changes the cpu freq
depending on the cpu load?

Oh, Thanks for that reply.

I also found if I use “cpufreq-set -g performance”, then cpu will be running at 720MHZ.
