How to check RAM frequency (overclock)

    On my RT-AC68U I have used:

    Code:
    nvram set clkfreq=1000,800
    I have the following output:

    Code:
    [email protected]:/tmp/home/root# cat /proc/cpuinfo
    Processor       : ARMv7 Processor rev 0 (v7l)
    processor       : 0
    BogoMIPS        : 1998.84
    
    processor       : 1
    BogoMIPS        : 1998.84
    
    So my BoboMIPS shows ~2 times the set CPU frequency, which appears accurate.

    However, how can I check the RAM frequency to see what it is actually running at and not what "nvram get clkfreq" shows (which is often inaccurate)?

    Thanks

    I believe /proc/cpuinfo is the most reliable way of determining what the current CPU clock speed is for that model of router.

    Yes, but I'm not asking about the CPU clock speed. I'm asking how to determine the RAM speed.

    Sorry, my mistake.
