Dynamic Energy Saver: To test this feature, I'll install the software and test the amount of energy saved by the software, at both idle and under load. To allow this software to work correctly, the C1E and EIST features must be enabled, because they dynamically lower the CPUs core speed and voltage at non-load times. The software expands on this reduce energy consumption even more.
Here are some screenshots of the Dynamic Energy Saver, while off and on at idle. You can throttle the CPU voltage to get the meter running even more.
Wow! A whopping 26 watts saved at idle, and 28 watts saved at load! This Dynamic Energy Saver function really works well.
