RightMark CPU Clock Utility (RMClock) (Intel & AMD)
RightMark CPU Clock Utility (RMClock) is a small GUI application designed for real-time CPU frequency, throttling and load level monitoring and on-the-fly adjustment of the CPU performance level of the supported CPUs via processor's power management model-specific registers (MSRs). In automatic management mode it continuously monitors the CPU usage level and dynamically adjusts the CPU frequency, throttle and/or voltage level as needed.
Real-time CPU clock and CPU/OS load level determination and monitoring (with optional logging).
Detection of virtually any form of CPU clock throttling.
Dynamic on-demand CPU performance state (P-state) transitions via real-time adjustment of the CPU multiplier (FID) and requested voltage level (VID).
Dynamic on-demand CPU clock modulation via real-time transitions between CPU clock throttling levels.
Advanced CPU-specific power management settings for AMD K7, AMD K8 and Intel Pentium M/Pentium 4/Xeon CPU families.
Support for multi-processor (SMP/HT/multicore) systems.
K7 (Athlon/XP/MP, Duron, Sempron)
K8 (Athlon 64/FX, Athlon 64 X2, Opteron 64, Turion 64, Sempron)
Pentium M/Celeron M
Pentium 4/Celeron (Northwood and Prescott cores)
Pentium 4 Extreme Edition (Gallatin and Prescott cores)
Xeon (Prestonia, Nocona, Cranford and Irwindale cores)
Pentium D and Pentium Extreme Edition (Smithfield core)
RightMark CPU Clock Utility will run on unsupported CPU models, however, in this case, most of its functionality will be unavailable.
Notebook Hardware Control (Intel Cpu's & Chipsets)
With Notebook Hardware Control (NHC) you can easily control the hardware components of your Intel Mobile Notebook. Notebook Hardware Control helps you to:
Prolong the battery lifetime and cool down the system with CPU Voltage Control and ATI Clock Control. Full processor speed control with custom dynamic switching and CPU Speed Control (CPU policy). Monitor the battery charge level and system temperature. Control and monitor the Hard Drive with S.M.A.R.T management, acoustic & advanced power management and Hard Drive temperature monitoring. Reduce noise with Notebook FAN Control.
Info: Notebook Hardware Control works on all Notebooks with Intel CPU's. Some features are only available on newer PentiumM CPU's (Centrino).
SpeedswitchXP (AMD & Intel Speed Control)
SpeedswitchXP is a small applet that sits in the system tray and allows dynamic switching of the frequencies of mobile Intel and mobile AMD CPUs under Windows XP. During the development of Windows XP, Microsoft decided to integrate dynamic frequency switching into the operating system itself. On a default Windows XP installation, the power schemes in the power settings of the system panel control the frequencies of the processor. On Windows 2000 and previous operating systems, it was possible to manually control the CPU frequencies with a SpeedStep applet provided by Intel, but this is not possible anymore under Windows XP. It is not very good documented what the different Windows XP power schemes do and it is impossible to fully adjust the schemes as the important settings are not accessible through the control panel.
SpeedswitchXP tries to fill this gap in that it provides access to ALL power scheme settings. This small applet is similar in functionality to the native Intel SpeedStep applet for Windows 9x/ME and Windows 2000 but with a few more options.
Basically all it does is creating a power scheme under the power settings in the system panel and making this the default power scheme for Windows XP. When this is done, you can control all settings of this new scheme through the applet.
Since this program is using Windows XP's internal processor performance control functions, it should work on all notebooks that feature dynamic speed switching.
So far, it has been successfully tested on notebooks with the following mobile CPUs:
Mobile Pentium III-M
Mobile Pentium 4-M
Mobile Pentium 4
Mobile Pentium M / Centrino
Mobile AMD Athlon XP
