when i do dmesg | grep cpu, i get this: [ 0.000000] Initializing cgroup subsys cpuset [ 0.000000] Initializing cgroup subsys cpu [ 16.245264] Initializing cgroup subsys cpuacct [ 18.120872] cpuidle: using governor ladder [ 18.120921] cpuidle: using governor menu [ 133.714393] Marking TSC unstable due to: cpufreq changes. Not too helpful. (I'm using Ubuntu)

try `cat /proc/cpuinfo` for some actually useful info.

You can use lshw or hwinfo hwinfo --cpu lshw -class processor You shouldn't rely on dmesg for hardware info.
