how does demand based switchign vary from speedstep and c1e? I ask because it seems the cpu supports those functions as well. Does it need motherboard support as well or is it pure cpu function there.
also just as a curiosity question what exactly does demand based switching do on this?
with the i/o at how would it work with better network usage being it is cpu based as I thought the network card would handle that or is it only for specific network cards. how much of a difference would it honestly make would you guess? my assumption is on home use not much
