I had an interesting question come across my desk a few days ago: “Is it still worthwhile to understand T-states?” My first response was to think, “Huh? What the heck is a T-state?”
INTRODUCTION AND PURPOSE:
I was hoping to write a brief two part overview of how to configure the various power settings for the Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor.
Dear passionate power management reader,
Yep. Here is another blog series from yours truly. Unfortunately, it will delay my long awaited – at least by me – discussion on measuring power.
Here is a rough outline for the blogs:
Unlike a lot of previous recent blogs, this series is about power management in general. At the very end of the series, I’ll write specifically about the Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor.
Power management policy has evolved over the years.
How about the future? Have we reached the pinnacle of power management?
