In the past, most computers were desktops and there was no real need for technologies like SpeedStep, Turbo Boost, etc. However, these days, power consumption is sometimes a higher priority than performance.
Considering the significant changes in new technology and hardware expectations, CPUs have gained many new features such as TurboBoost, SpeedStep, Hyper-Threading and individual core states that help reduce power consumption and heat.
While these are all positive changes, sometimes a situation arises where the user does not get top performance when required (delayed performance boost). This can be caused by many unforeseen factors such as system status, availability, CPU status, heat and more.
This application was created to help control such factors and reduce the impact of performance degradation where possible.
Quick CPU is a program designed to adjust and monitor important CPU and system parameters, such as CPU temperature, CPU performance, power, voltage, current, core parking, frequency scaling, system memory, Turbo boost and other settings.
The functionality of the application allows you to control the number of CPU cores (CPU Core parking) to be enabled or disabled (you can enable all cores at any time, based on your personal requirements, ) and by looking at the graph of CPU to see if specific cores are enabled or disabled.
This information is also available on the CPU Performance tab in the "Enabled Cores" and "Parked Cores" section. All information is real-time, so you do not need to click the "Refresh" button to find out the current status.
CPU frequency scaling is a feature that allows the operating system to scale the CPU frequency up or down to try to match the supply of energy according to demand, providing CPU performance when needed or saving energy when possible.
Using a technique similar to that of Core Parking, it tries to scale the CPU frequency dynamically based on the system load. The performance index. is an operating system feature that allows the end user to determine how much the processor should favor in terms of energy savings over maximum performance. This feature has been introduced in Windows 10 and will not be available in previous versions.
Therefore, by accessing all these settings, you have the ability to fully configure the power management of your computer, so that you have the best performance when you need it and the lowest power consumption on your computer when it is not needed.

The Quick CPU app has several graphs located on the left and right sides of the app. The charts on the right side of the application are divided into different panels according to their functionality.
note: all tables used for application charts can be rearranged, hidden, attached, detached or hidden according to user preferences.
Graph History: By default the application will save 20 minutes of historical data for each graph reading (temperature, distance to maximum CPU endurance limit, load, frequency).
You can access this data by scrolling the chart to the left using the scroll bar at the bottom of the chart control.
The time that represents historical data can be modified by going to the Options menu and selecting the CPU Graph Settings option. Use the maximum time range for historical data option to set a specific number of minutes for how long the graph will keep historical data accessible.
All in all, it is by far the best freeware available for this purpose to date (at least as far as I know) and should not be missing from any computer.
