The CPU is going over its rated GHZ because in fact your CPU is capable of clocking to 3.8ghz using Turbo Boost technology. It is totally safe. Use AMD Overdrive for temperature estimation on that CPU; AMD CPUs have been known to provide strange results to CPU temp measuring programs. If you want to independently verify the temperature Overdrive is ...

Analyzing your benchmark results, I see this warning on your "low" result, which raises immediate red flags for me: Very high background CPU (62%). High background CPU reduces benchmark accuracy. Find active processes with windows task manager (CTRL+SHIFT+ESC). The hardware in your system may not be the culprit. This indicates one of the processes ...

Frequently vendors test compatibility with existing memory modules thats fit. And not update documentation when bigger modules arrive. But it can be locked in "BIOS". Look for user expirience. Lenovo Y700 contains two SO-DIMM slots. Users reports upgrade to 32 Gb (2x 16Gb) Do it on Your own risk. But You risk just in cost of new RAM modules.

I was wondering that whether all the data in Computer has to go through the Processor or are there any Bypass Routes(like DMA) through which data goes Input/output (I/O) is almost always between the peripheral device and memory. Peripheral to peripheral transfers are highly unusual, as it requires specialized hardware, and makes error detection/recovery ...

For case 1 and 2, the data goes via the CPU. Consider the following: The crane is unable to move a crate onto or off the truck without the crate going via the crane in the process. For a CPU to write something, it'll somewhere along the way read the data first. Case 3 is a bit different: In this case, the GPU can read it, as it does the job itself, but only ...

For a laptop, you have an average temperature, which means you're on the safe side for a normal usage. However, the temperature will go up if there is more data processing, also there is a small heat lack. The average temperature in a normal usage should be between 21-40 C to all of your hardware, that includes motherboard. Some hardware can handle more ...

Analyzing the ETL with WPA shows that the cpu usage comes from the AMD/ATI GPU driver atikmdag.sys: Your driver version is "8.01.01.1533", This looks like the older Catalyst 15.8. Try the latest driver from AMD.

Christian's instructions are very helpful, but there is a minor glitch in the "brand string" bash script. The order must be: registers=(eax ebx ecx edx) otherwise the string will be all messed up.

Hefewe1zen has it right; processes may contain many threads. But not all of them are necessarily working at the same time Many of those threads may be suspended, waiting for some sort of event to happen, in which case the CPU scheduler isn't going to bother them. In addition, the CPU scheduler is smart enough to give the lion's share of the CPU time to ...

A single process can possess multiple threads. The operating system is responsible for scheduling threads and process. What you're seeing is summation of all threads currently running on the system. Also, context switching is a trivial operation on modern OSes with multicore CPUs.

I'm not 100% sure what you're looking for by trying to find out which 'generation' the APU is but, it's a Lynx/Llano, originally released in 2011. I think it would technically be first generation.

You can certainly run Linux on Skylake processors - I'm doing that now - that said, getting it running was not a pleasant experience as Linux needs to catch up with changes to the architecture - specifically getting my laptop to "not crash" was interesting, and required the latest version of Ubuntu, esoteric GRUB parameters, and it still produces (silently) ...

If you were reading a post, such as this, then you have nothing to fear as those posts are letting people know that MS is trying to force people to use the latest version of Windows. Even if a processor manufacturer were to make something that's "Windows Exclusive" the Linux kernel hackers would probably laugh and enjoy the challenge of trying to make the ...

This is a really poor answer, I know, It signifies the maximum speed of your processor. Your CPU is only going to work as hard as it needs to, to complete the specified task. As an example you can split in your processor frequency into 17 imaginary people. Let's say each person is equivelant to 100MHz of clock speed. If the task the people have to ...

Q1. My doubt is that whether the dynamic overclocking occurs for all cores together or each core is dynamically overclocked at different frequencies as needed. According to my monitoring program, the cores in my CPU have independant clock frequencies of eachother. This is probably intel speed-step working [Citation needed], (since naturally you cannot ...

The fan has one moving part there is no wear mechanism related to changing its speed. getting an intermediate speed by this trick seems likely to be benign or even beneficial in every scenario I can think of.

Take a thermometer and measure the outgoing air of the laptop, if it's different than the temperature readings in your software/BIOS, then it's possible that the temperature sensors on the motherboard are bad. If they are bad, you can try and set your BIOS so that it doesn't shutdown the system for another 20°C, if you do that though, I highly recommend ...

to cool your cpu install NOTEBOOK FANCONTROLL, with this you can force your fan to 100%, next thing, is more effective, lower your maximum power of CPU on 70% in power options, try it worked for me, my CPU is min 38°C, max 78°C sorry for bad eng. hope it helps

Just because the fans and LEDs power on does not mean that the power supply is good. Fans and LEDs use up very little amperage, and the rest of the system may not be getting enough power to fully boot up. If you search on Google, (or other search engine), you can find a power supply tester that you can use to see if it's really working or not, (search for: ...

Both the question and the accepted answer contain egregiously wrong information. As deduced from the comments, you have a Dell OptiPlex 740 with AMD Athlon 64 1640B. However the component list in the product support webpage erroneously includes Intel Pentium M Dothan 740, which is simply ridiculous, as you cannot have both AMD and Intel CPU in one PC. ...

You have to identify which service is causing it. First go into Services. Type it in the start Menu, or enable administrative tools in the start menu if it's not there already. Under services group them by which is running and see if there's any third-party, not windows service. You can stop and disable that. If you don't find anything unusual there, ...

As everyone is saying here - check the actual values if you can. 14 degrees is very cold for a CPU, unless you have a specialized system the CPU will never be colder than the room it is in. Again, as said, the fan will be very loud when running at 5500 RPM, unless you can hear it spooling up it's probably not running that fast. It's likely that at least ...

You will see a significant difference in general laptop use with an SSD compared to a traditional HDD. Boot times will be quicker and general navigation will be quicker. The upgrade is really up to you, if you do basic office work (like Word, Excel etc) then I would go with an upgrade. If you use it for other things like gaming, CAD work and other CPU ...

Sorry, but it is very non-definite. If you have HT enabled you have two logical processors per core. If you have it disabled, you have just one. (This lets us talk about how the scheduler works without constantly qualifying what we mean by a "CPU".) Either way, a logical processor is seen by the OS as a processor, and except for some attempts at scheduling ...

your ram is pc2-5300 ~666mhz and your cpu is designed to work with pc2-6400 ~800mhz or above so I don't think your ram will work with your pentium 4 cpu. You can still try lowering the fsb through your bios. I wouldn't touch it. If you wanna make sure you reported the correct speed of your ram, you can install hwinfo64 and check the frequencies supported ...

Yes, the processor has 64-bit support. This processor family is a little old, it would be good you check the compatibility of other devices with the Microsoft tool before install Windows 10. This link has the Get Windows 10 tool and it checks the compatibility.

You need to use an OS, kernel of which has an up to date ACPI module to benefit from CPU package C states. Otherwise, your CPU will not receive HALT instructions from the OS, waste power and produce heat.

Do light colored computers generate less heat. Nope. In both cases the case does not generate any heat at all. Also I aren't newer CPUs more power efficient Yes, most of the time. But that does not mean that they produce less heat. This will be the case moust of the time, but a counter example would be a CPU which is more efficient per core but adds ...

I think you are likely trying to use the wrong tool for the job. There is a project called TurionPowerControl which specifically supports underclocking (and undervolting) AMD K10 processors on linux. The project has been active for a number of years. From their project site: TurionPowerControl, despite its name, allows to view and control many ...

As far as I can tell, it shouldn't cause a big issue, not having a Skylake approved PSU. If not having low power states for the CPU isn't an issue for you, I wouldn't worry about it. I've done 2 PC builds around Skylake CPUs with "non Skylake approved" PSUs and they both work perfectly fine.

The average consumer can not buy a 100 core CPU, they don't exist in that market space. CPU can do more complex work. GPUs have hundreds or thousands of cores, mine has 4096, so they will complete the job way faster than a CPU. Only certain types of works loads are well suited to the GPU though. 4000*800Mhz=3200Ghz. There is overhead, and some ...

The cpufreq system is not a "proper" overclocking/underclocking system; it's just an interface to standard power-saving features (CPU frequency scaling) included on modern CPUs. In particular, this means that (1) you can't use cpufreq on its own to increase the processor speed beyond safe margins and (2) you don't have to do anything to the RAM. That doesn't ...

As @txtechhelp Provided the answer to my question is GPGPU.

It depends on your particular use of your computer. Different programs stress the hardware in different ways and performance may increase according to the upgrades that best satisfy each program's needs.

Did you check your Temperature Readings? 14°C. This tells me that your readings are wrong. So maybe your Fan readings are wrong as well. However, stock CPU-Fans can get really loud and 5400rpm is nothing too unusual when there is high load = high temperature. You should be able to hear 5400rpm. Idle rpm is around 800-1500rpm for stock fans.

Kernel-Processor-Power Event ID 37 is not an error, it is a warning. It informs you that your system runs on low battery and therefore has reduced the speed.

The normal temperature for a laptop is between 30 and 45 Celsius. A hard disk temp of 47 Celsius is okay, but if more than that, you should replace the thermal paste and clean dust from the processor fan.

The ram stick (CML16GX3M4A1600C9) you wrote seems to be a set of 4 ram sticks with 4GB each (4x4GB). Are you sure the ram you are using is a single 16GB ram ? From the statement it seems to me like you are using only one out of the four 4GB ram set. In this case it is natural that the BIOS only detects 4GB.

The ASUS B85M-G (R2.0) has four RAM slots while the RAM in these four slots may not exceed 32GB, which implies there is a 8GB limit per slot. Your choice of trying to use 1 16GB stick is not good, because you will not benefit from dual channel (assuming it would work, which it does not). Since you already had 2x4GB, you should of added another pair of 2x4 ...

integrated gpu is always on. If you run a game in full screen on the external gpu, the workload of the internal gpu is at minimum, if you are not playing or encoding a video in the background. but never zero in terms of utilization so you can't disable it. two gpus will be utilized in new generation chips, with directx 12

Wait for windows update to finish updates. Change clock rates and voltages to safe values. Do not set high clock rates or voltages for RAM. Enable heat saving technologies like coolnquiet for extra stability.

You should be fine. Although I don't think you need to overclock the RAM. If its meant to run at 3000Mhz you should be able to drop it into the motherboard, make sure your settings in BIOS will allow it to run at 3000Mhz, and go from there. I don't recommend going past 3000Mhz on your RAM as it may make your system unstable. For example, I have an AMD ...

gpus are good stream processors. you can think of stream processing as multiplying a long array of numbers sequentially. cpus also have stream processing capabilities (it's called SIMD extensions) but you can't implement all programming logic as stream processing, and compilers have the option to create btyecode which meakes use of simd instructions whenever ...

Actually Intel does a good job of explaining the benefits of AMT and, by inference, you can see how the likes of Lenovo, Dell, HP, Asus, etc. can leverage off AMT to provide warranty support to consumers.

I have the same board, cpu and bios version and the same insane 80+ core temps. To get much lower temps, try changing the CPU core/cache voltage from Auto to Adaptive and leave the new optios on Auto. For some reason the default Auto CPU voltage setting feeds a lot of voltage. Using adaptive mode the max voltage was 1.2V@4.2GHz while keeping the highest ...
