Ultra Performance Computing allows you to select one of several pre-configured settings that turn off numbers of cores, causing corresponding increases in the clock speed. This feature also configures the system so that the clock always runs at the indicated speed, removing jitter, or changes in clock speed due to conditions such as temperature or CPU load.
To change the Ultra Performance Computing settings, you must use the BIOS Setup Utility and reset the system. See Configure Ultra Performance Computing (BIOS).
The following table lists the available choices, including the number of active cores, and the corresponding clock speed:
Enabling Ultra Performance Computing causes three changes to the system:
Turns off the corresponding number of cores
Increases the maximum frequency and locks the clock speed at the indicated value.
Ultra Performance Computing is designed so that the CPU always runs at the indicated speed. This removes the possibility of "jitter" or changes in the system's clock speed.
Overrides all power management settings and disables those selections in the BIOS Setup Utility.
