Intel unveils Foxton technlogy - dynamic clockspeed and voltage

Posted on Monday, February 07 2005 @ 21:19 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
Intel unveiled a dynamic low-power technology, dubbed Foxton, for its dual-core Itanium processors. Eventually this technolog will also be used in 32- and 64-bit Xeon processors.
Foxton is a hardware-based technology that claims to dynamically and automatically adjust the voltage and frequency settings for a microprocessor — while also boosting overall system performance by up to 10 percent. Within Foxton, Intel has also incorporated a demand-based switching (DBS) technology, which is said to dynamically reduce processor power consumption based on demand and workload.
