Iโ€™d like to point out sudo is needed for Ianโ€™s answer above:

sudo cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu*/cpufreq/cpuinfo_cur_freq

However you can get the same results without sudo using:

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

My favourite is to use Conky where you can paint your own picture:


This sits on the right of my built-in display all the time. The relevant code for the CPU section is:

${color2}${voffset 5}Intelยฎ i-7 3630QM 3.4 GHz: ${color1}@  ${color green}${freq} MHz
