I was reading through the seeed pfsense install material for the Odyssey in prep for when the device arrives. However one thing stood out in the pfsense wiki dashboard screen shot which worried me. The Intel Celeron J4105 base clock is 1.50GHz, however it should boost up to 2.5 GHz using the intel speedstep technology. The screen shot showed the min and max speed of this CPU to be 1.50GHZ/1.51GHZ.
Can someone advise if the full power of this CPU is obtainable in pfsense? I would like to see proof via the pfsense dashboard screenshot if possible. If it isn’t then I need to cancel my order and go with plan B.
I did try and add an example of a different CPU dashboard screenshot that is showing it’s min and max correctly, but as I am new to this forum can only embed one image [sigh]. From what I’ve read it is primarily the motherboard BIOS that needs to have all the boxes ticked to enable this CPU support in the underlying operating systems, and from the earlier screenshot it is telling me it certainly doesn’t. There is also a possibility something isn’t configured in pfsense either. Surprised not to have heard anything back as yet, my device will be arriving in an hour or so, so will soon know if we have a problem.
