"Is it possible?" Well, yes, in a sense. It's called having two separate computers. Or, to a lesser degree, virtualization. The motherboard is what ties all the pieces of a computer together. It hosts system buses, peripheral-hardware interfaces, and so on. Simplifying a little, today's hardware isn't designed in such a way that it can be shared between ...

For a kernel-level mechanism for this, you need to read up on Linux Control Groups. This is an area still in active development, so you'll need to ensure that what you read is consistent with the kernel you have (or are willing to install). Although you said not to install anything additional, you might consider installing cgred to automate moving ...

You can do so with bash shell, sleep, pgrep, and pkill commands using STOP and CONT signals. The following one-liner will make the processes use maximum of 50% of total availabile CPU time. It's going to run for each 100 miliseconds, then it'll be stopped for another 100 milliseconds. while [ True ]; do pkill -STOP processname; sleep 0.1s; pkill -CONT ...

Without installing any extra software you have nice. The value range is from -20 to 19. nice -20 some_command gives some_commandthe highest priority, and nice 19 some_command gives some_commandthe lowest priority.

Since we have 64-bit addresses and address resolution is at the byte level, 2^64 bytes can be addressed. Since each word is 8 bytes, (2^64)/8 words can be addressed.

Many old games were CPU limited. When I got my Mac 8100/80av, my Ambrosia Software games flew. For windows you can try things like processes throttling, but if they're really old, you could use DOSbox. http://mion.faireal.net/BES/ http://threadmaster.tripod.com/ http://www.dosbox.com/ Other than that, you could also try running it in compatibility mode. ...

Your program output is pretty difficult to read as it is not properly formatted, but assuming 68 68 78.5 are your CPU core temperatures, that's definitely pretty high (especially if this is idle temperature). The main culprit I would check would be the heatsink - make sure it is seated securely and that it is free of dust. If it is dirty, remove it and ...

Essentially, "Power consumption is about linear with frequency." If I'm understanding that correctly, it would mean that the slower processor could consume less power at low intensity workloads. But also shown on that page is that the higher the workload, the less efficiency it has (it's not truly linear, in other words). So that would mean that the lower ...
