Nisam to primecivao ranije, to me zbunjuje. Mislio sam da C&Q samo smanjuje brzinu rada (broj obrtaja) coolera, a ne mnozilac procesora?
Mada sam sad na Wikipedia-i nasao da pored coolera regulise i druge stvari...
A evo sad vidim i objasnjenje na sajtu AMD-a...
How Cool'n'Quiet™ Technology Works
Cool'n'Quiet technology works by reducing a system's clock speed and processor voltage when full processing power is not required. This reduces the demand on the power supply unit and allows the processor to run cooler and use a heatsink with a quieter fan.
Each such “adjustment” places a CPU in one of three or more different “states,” each with a different clock speed and voltage setting(s). There is a maximum state, one or more intermediate states, and a minimum state.
For example, the AMD Athlon™ 64 processor 3500+ adjusts to four different states – a maximum state with a 2.2GHz clock speed and 1.5V to provide full processing power, two intermediate states with 2.0GHz and 1.8GHz clock speeds and 1.4V and 1.3V, and a minimum state with a 1.0GHz clock speed and 1.1V for word processing, emailing, Web browsing, and so on.
The more states available, the more flexible the processor.
Cool'n'Quiet technology can adjust clock speeds and voltages up to 30 times per second, which guarantees responsiveness and avoids processor stalling.
