Use Pacman to get cpudynd

pacman -Sy cpudyn

load the speedstep-centrino, cpufreqpowersave, cpufrequserspace and freq_table modules

start the cpudyn and acpid deamons

grep \"cpu MHz\" /proc/cpuinfo

or (prefered one since it should be more accurate)

cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_cur_freq
