CPU C States and latency
argonaut last edited by
I have an Intel i3-8100 quad core CPU and would like to ensure that system responsiveness is maximized.
Two "markers" for gauging success in this regard could be:-
Lowering the Gateway RTT to the absolute minimum possible, and
also to keep to the absolute minimum the NTP offset delta as reported by the OS/ntp daemon.
I have currently turned off all C states and am about to lower the dynamic vcore (to save a little power) by around -0.140 mV or so.
Do you see any issues with this approach and can you comment on additional methods to lower the aforementioned markers?
Thank-you in advance
