  1. Oh yeah, I'm still researching on it a bit. The information it about 1 or 2 years old for the Skylakes, but it includes what was prior too.

    A good example, I just found out what the duty cycling option was about: The many tricks Intel Skylake uses to go faster and use less power | Ars Technica

    "Skylake systems-on-chips will offer another power saving feature: duty cycling. The processor's energy consumption is proportional to the square of the frequency, which is why cutting the frequency is so important to saving energy and increasing the battery life. But at low frequencies, the frequency-dependent energy consumption is no longer the dominating factor. Instead, things such as leakage (the small currents that flow though transistors even when they're "off") dominates. Once this threshold is reached, reducing the frequency further to save energy doesn't work. In fact, it makes energy usage worse: a lower frequency means that calculations take longer, meaning it takes longer for the processor to switch to its lowest "off" state.
    So what Skylake will do is duty cycle: instead of switching to ever lower frequencies, once it reaches the most efficient frequency it will cut energy usage further by cycling between this efficient frequency and suspended in the C6 power state."

    For overclockers that means in the high performance profile: Disable it(just for the power profile)

    Doing a mouse over give tool tips for the un-"hidden" settings in the advanced option though.
  2. Check out my post here, might be a tutorial in it, but go to the posted site for more in depth info:
  3. Just interesting info on Intel Speed Shift. How it effects browsing and of course input latency.
