Lines from dmesg:

 Timecounter "i8254" frequency 1193182 Hz quality 0
CPU: VIA C7 Esther+RNG+AES+AES-CTR+SHA1+SHA256+RSA (399.40-MHz 686-class CPU)
  Origin = "CentaurHauls"  Id = 0x6a9  Stepping = 9
  
Features=0xa7c9bbff<FPU,VME,DE,PSE,TSC,MSR,PAE,MCE,CX8,APIC,SEP,MTRR,PGE,CMOV,PAT,CLFLUSH,ACPI,MMX,FXSR,SSE,SSE2,TM,PBE>
  Features2=0x181<SSE3,EST,TM2>

It clearly indicates that it's a 400MHz processor, but the timecounter
makes me think it' the 1.2 GHz it's supposed to be.

The BIOS didn't seem to have anything to adjust the CPU speed, but
while booting I did notice that it declared itself as a via C7 400MHz
processor.
