After I came across this thread, I installed dmidecode and checked on
my machine. It reports unknown in my case too. However I can see the
info from my windows install using cpuz.
However I have to mention, my mother board and RAM are pretty bleeding
edge. Its a Gigabyte P45 board with 2x2GB Corsair 1066 MHz RAM. So
could it be, dmidecode has trouble reporting all the data for newer
Open source is the future. It sets us free.
