tedu@ just committed enhanced PowerNow! (Cool'n'Quiet) support for the AMD K7 and K8 processor families. Depending on your hardware, you may now be able to take advantage of hw.setperf to scale CPU speed. This is i386 only for now with plans on it being ported to amd64.
Things can only get better... Here's a choice quote from the 3.8 testing phase (with no context of course):
