No, the CPU is a crippled-down Celeron M 600 MHz, so not even "speedstep"
is working. From cpuinfo:

The only (relatively) special thing: We have a multi-threaded user space application running
with a lot of threads (~70): About 6...10 of them are running using the (almost) realtime
scheduler the standard Linux kernel provides (no RT-patches applied), and 4...6 are using
very high priorities 80..99.
Might this interfere with chrony ?
