Power Improvements on 2008 Desktop Platforms

  title={Power Improvements on 2008 Desktop Platforms},
  author={Paul M. Zagacki},
Idle and low-utilization platform power management have been key deliverables for mobile platforms for many years. The resulting platforms based on Intels Centrinos technology have delivered increasing performance and capabilities while continuing to increase the overall battery life of the mobile platform. These same principles have gained importance also in desktop platforms as corporations strive to reduce the cost of deploying platforms in support of their efforts to address global climate…

Analyzing potential power reduction with adaptive voltage positioning optimized for multicore processors
This paper analyzes potential total power reduction of a high-performance quadcore processor when the regulator output voltage can be dynamically repositioned depending on individual core's power-states that affect processor load-current significantly and extends the analysis to consider each core's temperature and within-die spatial process variations that can affect leakage substantially.


Making USB a More Energy Efficient Interconnect
The USB power issues are outlined and their impact on mobile platforms are looked at and ways of resolving these issues are discussed; most issues and solutions apply to other systems as well.
