Gold Spencer M, Branover Alex, Cho Hanwoo, Nussbaum Sebastien: Automatic processor overclocking. Advanced Micro Devices, Gold Spencer M, Branover Alex, Cho Hanwoo, Nussbaum Sebastien, DRAKE Paul S, September 17, 2009: WO/2009/114141 (5 worldwide citation)

Processor overclocking techniques are disclosed. Upon automatically determining (310) that overclocking entry criteria are satisfied, one or more cores (230) are clocked (320) above their standard operation frequencies. The cores (230) may be overclocked until one or more exit criteria are satisfied ...

Gold Spencer M, Kwan Bill K C, Eaton Craig D: Method and apparatus for clock cycle stealing. Advanced Micro Devices, Gold Spencer M, Kwan Bill K C, Eaton Craig D, DRAKE Paul S, March 12, 2009: WO/2009/032231

A method for producing a plurality of clock signals. The method includes generating a reference clock signal using a phase locked loop (PLL). The reference clock signal is then provided to each of a plurality of clock divider units which each divide the received reference clock signal to produce a c ...
