    Core2Duo: Move to\from C4 state

    zvivered

      Hello,

       

      I'm working with Core2Duo under vxWorks 6.8

       

      In order to put the CPU into C4 I ran the following code:

       

      mov EAX, 0x30 (Bits 0-3 define C4 sub states)

      mov ECX, 0x0

      mwait

       

      1. Where can I find full documentation on C1,C2,C3 sub states ?

      I read the manual of Core2Duo but found only information on C1-C4 states. not sub states.

       

      2. Does the High Performance Event Timer (HPET) keep ticking under C4 ?

       

      3. Can I use ICE (e.g ARIUM) to find what is current state of the CPU ?

       

      Thanks,

      Zvika.
