While trying to figure out what happened to make my two identical
processors show up differently in /proc/cpuinfo I noticed that they do
not appear differently in the x86info utility. Here is a copy of my
/proc/cpuinfo:

processor : 0
vendor_id : GenuineIntel
cpu family : 6
model : 8
model name : Pentium III (Coppermine)
stepping : 6
cpu MHz : 999.682
cache size : 256 KB
fdiv_bug : no
hlt_bug : no
f00f_bug : no
coma_bug : no
fpu : yes
fpu_exception : yes
cpuid level : 2
wp : yes
flags : fpu vme de pse tsc msr pae mce cx8 apic sep mtrr pge
mca cmov pat pse36 mmx fxsr sse
bogomips : 1992.29

processor : 1
vendor_id : GenuineIntel

fdiv_bug : no
hlt_bug : no
f00f_bug : no
coma_bug : no

wp : yes
flags : fpu vme de pse tsc msr pae mce cx8 apic sep mtrr pge
mca cmov pat pse36 mmx fxsr sse
bogomips : 1998.84

Notice that the cpuid level and bogomips values are reported to be
different, but look at the output of `x86info -a`:

999MHz processor (estimate).

According to Dave J's utility the cpu's appear to be exactly the same
just as the Intel boxes said when I bought them. What might be causing
these values to be different. And if the BIOS is setting things up
incorrectly then why does Dave J's utility show the correct values?
Thanks for any help.
