About AMD PowerNow!(TM) Technology

AMD PowerNow! technology can significantly extend the battery life of notebook PCs up to 30 percent. It also provides performance on demand and enables a cooler and quieter-running notebook computing experience. AMD PowerNow! technology is a combination of software and hardware support that allows the processor to run at different frequencies and voltages based on user preference or application demand.

A simple Windows® control panel interface allows the user to select between three modes of system operation: * AMD PowerNow! technology provides a unique "automatic" mode that allows the system to determine the appropriate level of power and performance based on application demand, delivering the best of both worlds- extended battery life with no compromise in performance. * In the high-performance mode the CPU always runs at maximum performance. * In battery-saver mode the CPU always runs in its lowest power state, enabling the longest system battery life.
