Here is the output of sudo cpupower -c all frequency-info

    Pstate-P2:  2500MHz
    Pstate-P3:  2000MHz
    Pstate-P4:  1400MHz

shows the same, on all cores, googled myself to death to see what needs to be done, tried different solutions, bios changes, modprobeing different acpi and amd stuff, all to no avail. I would love to talk to others with the same processor, to see if the problem is Fedora, or AMD. Has anyone got this to work? If so, please be so kind as to tell me how.

UPDATE:Enabled cool n quiet in bios, and it allows me to set the governors and frequency.

Enabled Cool n Quiet in the bios on my motherboard, and kernel sees the acpi-cpufreq now, and I can adjust the settings with cpupower. Hope this helps others wth AMD Processors, get the most available from them.
