Its a technology by intel which allows the OS to independently lower the frequency of the cores when the need be thus saving power. If it's disabled then both the cores will run at a fixed frequency. Enabling it will allow the OS to make the core's run at different frequencies thus making optimum use of power

i jsut googled it lol :>

It allows Windows to drop the CPU speed down when idle or mostly idle (say, browsing the internet) to save electricity. I have it disabled because I run all of my rigs at 100% for WCG and F@H, but it is useful for people who don't.
