One Reply to “A note for Atom CPU users”

  1. I have FreeBSD on a small Atom D510 machine, and powerd does indeed do frequency scaling with the p4tcc cpufreq driver. Most of the time it seems to keep the CPU scaled to below 800MHz. The system does put out a little heat, but not very much, and it’s completely fanless. According to coretemp, idle CPU temperatures are about 50C.
