Intel Dynamic Acceleration

Common Options : Enabled, Disabled

Quick Review

This BIOS feature is specific to the Intel Core 2 Duo mobile processor, introduced from the 4th-generation Intel Centrino Duo (Santa Rosa) mobile platform onwards. It is similar to the Intel Core i7 processor's Turbo Mode feature.

When enabled, the processor will automatically ramp up the clock speed of one processing cores (while shutting off the other core) to improve its single-threaded performance while reducing its thermal output and power consumption.

When disabled, the processor will not overclock any processing core when single-threaded applications are running. Both its processing cores will run at the same clock speed.

If you are not already overclocking the Intel Core 2 Duo mobile processor, it is highly recommended that you enable this BIOS option to improve its performance with single-threaded applications. It will also reduce its power consumption and thermal output while running such applications.

However, you should disable this BIOS option if you are already overclocking the processor. Enabling it will very likely cause the processor to run one of the two cores at an excessively high clock speed and lock up the processor whenever a single-threaded application is running.
