||After installing the Encore/ST G4 upgrade card, its speed is reported incorrectly. This occurs using Apple System Profiler (ASP), as well as other third party reporting utilities such as Xbench, Tech Tool, and others.||May-12-09|
|Encore/ST G4 upgrade cards use processor chips from Freescale Semiconductor (formerly a division of Motorola). Currently, ASP and third party reporting utilities may not accurately calculate the bus multiplier used on some Encore/ST cards to achieve the processor\u8217 s rated speed. Because of this shortcoming, the utilities may report a processor speed of 0 MHz, or simply miscalculate the multiplier and come up with a number, for example, such as 667 MHz.|
