Granola – Improves the Energy Efficiency of PC or LaptopMonday, May 10, 2010 12:46
Granola makes computers more energy efficient without slowing them down. Granola is safe, easy to use, and allows your computer to operate with the performance of a Ferrari when speed counts but also with the efficiency of a Prius so you don’t waste energy. Help save the world with Granola.
Granola automatically optimizes a system to use energy more efficiently without compromising performance or availability. The Granola Power Management Daemon when installed on a server, laptop, or PC, matches the energy consumed by the system to the load on the system automatically.
That is where Granola comes in. Using sophisticated workload modeling and prediction algorithms, Granola can determine when your computer is working and the CPU needs to be “bright” and when your computer is relaxing and the CPU can be “dim” without affecting your work. This allows Granola to automatically change DVFS modes to save energy when you can while still running at full speed when you need it.
