In addition to raw parallelism, the SCC incorporates fine-grain power management features that allow software applications to determine how much energy is needed at a given time and for a given Electronics Wholesaler
task. Clock frequencies and voltages can be set to different levels across the chip depending on application needs. Cores or even entire banks of cores can sleep starzmart and wake as needed. The 48 cores require just 25 watts in idle mode or 125 watts when running at maximum performance, which is comparable to the consumption of two standard household light bulbs. Imagine applying this kind of capability across large systems such as data centers, and you can see how the power savings would multiply.
