AMD AM2+ Star processors to have better power and thermal management

Posted on Saturday, January 06 2007 @ 00:16:40 CET by

In its upcoming AM2+ Star processors, AMD will implement better power and thermal management to improve energy effiency:
Specification takes effect on July 20, 2007. AMD will enhance C’n’Q with C1E by allowing the CPU to tri-state its IO during system idle and this allows power savings up to 18.3% during idle mode. Chipsets and BIOS are being validated for C1E support right now and so far ATi SB450 and SB600 chipsets are already validated for C1E.

The Stars processors (Agena, Kuma, Rana, Spica) based on Socket AM2+ supports dual voltage plane to allow control of CPU and NB voltages independently so CPU and NB clocks can be altered accordingly to usage. Thermal management for Stars cores is enhanced further with the support for SB-TSI, a digital temperature interface for more accurate, multiple -sense points.
