RAM on Thinkpad X220

Memtester running on Linux is a more throughout RAM tester than the usual memtest.

Info on the max RAM speed: http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/does-x220-i7-support-1600-1866mhz-ram.732786/

Apparently, only older/modded/coreboot BIOSes let you use 1866MHz ram that helps quite dramatically with the GPU performance.

Simili dual-channel works if you use 2GB+4GB sticks for instance. Bringing the speed benefits on 2GB of RAM (benefits the GPU as well).

SHE Super Hybrid Engine on Linux without Jupiter

I’m using an Asus eeePc 901 with Xubuntu 12.04.Jupiter is installed on it for a convenient way to manage the SHE. The SHE enables control over the FSB, it is very efficient to further reduce the battery usage, and is independent of the cpufreq governors.
I will soon upgrade to the 14.04 version of Xubuntu, so I looked into the replacements. Everybody talks about TLP but this doesn’t manage the SHE of the eeePCs.

The mode can be changed by setting 0, 1 or 2 in the following file: /sys/devices/platform/eeepc/cpufv
0 : max perf – overclock FSB
1 : on demand – standard FSB
2 : power save – downlclock FSB

Source I used to find out: http://chomaloma.blogspot.fr/2010/02/followup-on-super-hybrid-engine-superhe.html

You need the eeepc_laptop module loaded for this cpufv option to be available.
