Intel Deep Power Down

Intel's Deep Power Down mode refers to an energy saving mode on current Intel processors. The deep power down command is used to switch off all unused processor cores in their entirety. The power control unit integrated into the process controls the core activities. The power gate integrated into the mainboard then switches off the individual cores as required (see C6 as well).
