Alex Branover, Frank P Helms, Maurice Steinman: Data processing device with low-power cache access mode. Advanced Micro Devices, May 10, 2011: US07941683 (6 worldwide citation)

A processor can operate in three different modes. In an active mode, a first voltage is provided to the processor, where the first voltage is sufficient to allow the processor to execute instructions. In a low-power mode, a retention voltage is provided to the processor. The processor consumes less ...

A processor can operate in different power modes. In an active power mode, the processor executes software. In response to receiving a halt indication from the software, hardware at the processor evaluates bus transactions for the processor. If the bus transactions meet a heuristic, hardware places ...

Spencer M Gold, Alex Branover, Hanwoo Cho, Sebastien Nussbaum: Automatic processor overclocking. Meyertons Hood Kivlin Kowert & Goetzel, September 17, 2009: US20090235108-A1

Processor overclocking techniques are disclosed. Upon automatically determining that overclocking entry criteria are satisfied, one or more cores are clocked above their standard operation frequencies. The cores may be overclocked until one or more exit criteria are satisfied. At that point, an exit ...
