Default Deepfreezing a Transmeta efficeon @ VansHW

Quote:
The results above prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the efficeon is engaging in heat related performance throttling. In other words, instead of using a fan to cool the CPU when it starts heating up, the efficeon slows itself down so that it does not fail because of high temperatures. These increasingly severe performance reduction measures occur under very light load and don't take very long to engage. It is also clear that if the efficeon had a better heating solution -- like one with a fan -- this throttling would not take place under normal loads.
