Description : daemon for frequency and voltage control of AMD K8 CPUs with undervolting/overvolting capability
cpupowerd can be used with AMD K8 processors to adjust the CPU frequency
and voltage dynamically.
It can be run as a daemon that dynamically adjusts the processor state
according to load.
It's capabilities include overvolting as well as undervolting. This means
you can use it to run your processor at a voltage lower than what it is
supposed to run at according to it's specifications and make it run cooler
and with lower power consumption. WARNING: Doing this could cause damage to
your hardware so only do it if you know what you're doing and are willing to
accept the risk.
Currently it supports only AMD K8 processors like Athlon, Athlon64 (X2),
Sempron, Opteron, Turion...
