When ZDOOM loads it tells you the speed your processor is at. about 6 times out of 7 mine displays the correct speed of 1.477GHz but every once in a while it displays 386MHz or some other low number. Does this happen to anyone else?

Wtf?
Apparently not.

I don't really care what it thinks, as long as it runs right.

Not that I really use ZDoom for anything anyway.

ZDoom is purrrrrrdy. I like to stare at distant things in 1280x1024.

IIRC ZDoom computes the processor's speed on it's own (i.e. does not rely on info Windows is giving), and sometimes it happens that it computes wrong. It happened to me a bunch of times too. Nothing to worry about, ZDoom will be as fast as always :)

Zdoom probably only queries with one or two calls. if your processor got an interrupt from another, more important device at that moment, there would be a wait and thus a miscalculation. This is just a guess though...
I'm sure Mr. H. knows the answer without even thinking about it...

I had 3 mhz once. I didn't know DOOM would run on such computers.
