    As an owner of an Lenovo T420 with a SNB i7 I'm very happy to see that gen6 hardware still receives feature enabling support. Thank you Intel!
  2. Yes and no. When idle the CPU core frequency...

    Yes and no. When idle the CPU core frequency stays at its lowest value constantly when using the on demand govenour. however pc states above pc2 are not entered. Power consumption stays with 14-16...

    I totally agree. Keeping the idle drain low is very important especially during business meetings with the windows laptops from my coleagues runing twice as long than my linux box with identical...

    Finally! Thank you Michael for bringing up this issue! That confirms my experience with mobile HSW over the last 9 Months :(

    Michael,

    could you also do a comparision on IDLE power consumption? Especially on mobile systems it would be very interesting to see if the new kernel does a better job in handling the power...

    Well thats nice but how do I actually activate the extension? I've installed latest mesa git and tweaked the gl version override:



    MESA_GL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=3.2 MESA_GLSL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=150

    Question: Why would one still use the CPUFreq govenors on a SNB+ Core i7 machine while Intel provides their P-State govenor that supposedly run much more efficient on their CPUs? What is the...

    Michael, could you please compare the power consumption on your Haswell system between 3.15 and 3.16 drm-next especially when idle? On my Haswell Laptop when idle the cpu frequency frequently jumps...
  9. cpu frequency in 3.16 is way up if idle,...

    cpu frequency in 3.16 is way up if idle, backlight keys on my T440p don't work anymore and system won't enter lower package states even if display is completely off. idle drain is now 19 watts from...

    Hopefully they'll finally do something about the package state issue on Haswell and the resulting high power consumption when idle.

    Yes! sysfs provides access to Battery properties such as discharge current.
  12. Nice to see there is still some efford to make...

    Nice to see there is still some efford to make the CPU more power efficient. But what about the Package state issues? My Haswell i7 w/o discrete gpu still won't enter PC7 when idle resulting in...

    Got a Lenovo t440p Laptop with a Haswell i7-4600M and the System comsumes twice as much power (16 Watts using Intel P-State driver) during idle state than my old T420 with a I7-2620M both without...

    confirmed, i915_enable_rc6=1 reduces power drain about 30%.
    unfortunately i915_enable_rc6=1 causes the gpu to hang pretty often and to lock up the system entirely as soon as multiple OpenGL or...

    very nice :). I'm keen to see some mobile i5/i7 benchmarks - especially how the IGP performs on the mobile chips. But from what I see it looks my next mandatory purchase will be a SNB laptop :)

    well this is some good news. I'm keen to see know how the mobile SB GPU does. Btw. what about vaapi video decoding? does this actually work? what about some initial benchmarks on that?
