Question Question about EPU-6 Engine

Not many of you probably know about the EPU-6 engine: its a program that is available for the ASUS P5Q line of motherboards. Even though it is apparently designed for power saving and environmental friendliness, I have it installed and set to "turbo mode" which apparently offers the greatest performance.

I'm just curious if anyone knows if the EPU-6 engine actually lowers performance regardless of how it is set, and whether I should uninstall it completely to ensure the best performance for my system. Much appreciated!

Intel Core 2 Quad Q9400 2.66GHz
4Gb DDR2 Kingston RAM
XFX Nvidia 260 GTX 896Mb
Ultra 1000W PSU

Default Re: Question about EPU-6 Engine

It probably just underclocks and undervolts your CPU to reduce power consumption. Turbo or maximum performance mode is probably just stock clocks
