1. Introduction

This text, initially started back in 1993 as BogoMips Information Sheet, is retrievable in the most up-to-date version from its homepage at www.clifton.nl, and from the various Linux archives.

Translations are reported to be available in Chinese, French , German, Hungarian , Indonesian , Italian , Japanese, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian , Spanish , and Slovak from appropriate archives.

An explanatory article , titled 'the Quintessential Linux Benchmark,' was published in the Linux Journal, vol 21, January 1996. The BogoMips is also explained in The Jargon File.

New mini-Howto entries for unlisted CPUs will be highly appreciated. They can be send per e-mail to the author Wim van Dorst
