    I don't have a clue on what throttling is or how it is set or invoked or looked at? Thanks, anyone.

    p.s. presumably bogomips is a timing routine Linus put in so linux could have some idea how fast/slow the processor was so some decisions could be made on boot and/or setup?

    The same problem and the problem persists with a new kernel 3.7.0-4 public, the system will fail to boot, it still freezes and gives those same usb device notifications

    same here I haven't gotten any 3.7 kernel to boot yet . Very much like quantal was for me , it was almost 2 months in before I was able to get off the precise kernel .
    if it ain't broke you haven't tweaked it enough

    You know what?!?!?

    I was *thinking* about upgrading my hardware, now that my AGP nVidia card has moved to legacy status. And, I was *leaning toward* superseding my Intel P4 Extreme Edition CPU with an 8-Core AMD.

    *Looks like* I'm going with an Intel Core i7... LoL!

    This thread has been an eye-opener for me. Thanks!

    Is there any good reason to believe this issue won't get fixed? I think I'll see if it works with my hardware now...

    I dunno .. but the daily.iso works just great here on ATi , Intel and nVidia chipsets.

    The Intel video always seems to work with Unity 3D and compiz, even on the Intel 64bit series. I have one AMD dualcore 64 bit and have had no problems (on ATi) with these kernels.

    I've been using the combination of amd and nvidia for a long time and it is only the last couple of cycles that I have had serious problems .

    Re: Kernel 3.7 and AMD cpu's

    Try to narrow in which version this regression started.

    Try between known working version (3.5) and known not working (3.7)

    Start with 3.6-rc4. If that works try 3.6-rc6. if not, then 3.6-rc2.
    Then choose next version again between workin and broken.
