The BogoMips Mini-Howto ( says:

The Lowest Linux BogoMips:
Tim Van der Linden <>
Intel 8088/4.77
0.02 BogoMips

The Highest Linux single-CPU BogoMips:
Kevin Jacobs <>
21164/500 EB164 Durango
497.43 BogoMips

I don't know how current this is. My AMD K6 200 gives me
400, and 450 BogoMips if I gently overclock it. I havn't yet tried
83 Mhz bus speed... ;-)
