Intel Disclosed Foxton Technology Details

Intel disclosed more details about its dynamic low-power technology for high-end microprocessors. The low-power technology, dubbed Foxton, is initially targeted for Intel’s dual-core, 64-bit Itanium processor line, but it will be eventually incorporated within its 32- and 64-bit Xeon chips. Foxton is a hardware-based technology that claims to dynamically and automatically adjust the voltage and frequency settings for a microprocessor — while also boosting overall system performance by up to 10 percent. Within Foxton, Intel has also incorporated a demand-based switching (DBS) technology, which is said to dynamically reduce processor power consumption based on demand and workload. Foxton is said to automatically adjust the voltage in a processor in 12.5-miliwatt increments at 32 different settings. It can also modulate the frequency in a processor at 64 different increments.
