Sorry if this a very fundamental question but, is the maximum frequency given under the Timing Summary report after running XST on an EDK project, the maximum frequency the Microblaze will be running at? The EDK project that I designed does have a Microblaze processor.
I was changing the configuration of the Microblaze and that resulted in higher maximum frequency values. When I ran the Dhrystone benchmark and measured the time I noticed that the execution times had gone down. I guess I wanted to confirm if my understanding was correct or not.
As for my changes, I removed the hardware multiplier and divider and was expecting the execution times to go up but I wasn't too sure how to explain why the execution times would have gone down.
