1 CPUFreq is a Linux kernel subsystem which allows the clock speed of mobile CPUs
2 (most often found in laptop computers) to be explicitly set. CPUSpeed
3 dynamically controls CPUFreq, slowing down the CPU to conserve power and reduce
4 heat when the system is idle, on battery power or overheating, and speeding up
5 the CPU when the system is busy and more processing power is needed. Using
6 CPUSpeed can significantly increase a laptop computer's battery life and
7 significantly reduce the heat it generates while still allowing your system to
8 perform at top speed when you need it.
