Pi Zer0 clock frequency

Mon Nov 30, 2015 9:13 am

The advertised clock frequency for Pi Zer0 is 1GHz, but the default setting determined through /boot/config.txt or raspi-config seems to be 700MHz, whatever the hardware.
I'm guessing the Pi Zer0 needs to be set to the higher clock speed and it's not automatic.

Is this correct or did I miss something?

Did you undertake a fresh install of Raspbian Wheezy ?
