I am still unable to duplicate any of the performance changes seen on any of my hyperthreaded systems.
Only thing that is clear is that we need some sort of real testing methodology to isolate the possible changes of the core parking algorithm from the countless other factors that are no doubt skewing at least some reports one way or the other.

I'm going to check but I think the time it took to run through 3dmark Vantage also decreased (I'm referring to the loading times from one test to the next). What the heck does that mean? I'm on an Athlon II 640. I'm want to double check my results this weekend after my exams but can anyone try this out on an AMD system or explain?
This tweak is incapable of doing anything that would affect your CPU. What you are seeing is either placebo, or there are other factors involved.

It's amazing how much misinformation is spread around here.
Why? To undo the previous tweak so you have easier control over the feature with the power configuration control panel, so you don't have to dig through the registry every time you want to make a change.
There may well be some misinformation here, but removing the previous tweak is not
one of them.Edited by Blameless - 12/8/11 at 2:25am
