Down you will find all releases ordered by type and version and some comments to it.

AMD K8 patches:
These patches supports undervolting for (probably) all recent AMD processors starting from the AMD K8 architecture. Older AMD processors are more extensively supported though, these include:
  • AMD X2 processors
  • AMD Turion64 processors
  • AMD Turion X2 processors, except newer RM-* and ZM-* processors
  • AMD Neo processors
These processors can not only be undervolted, but the driver also unlocks more frequencies to choose from and allows Black Edition processors to be overclocked.

More recent AMD processors are supported as well, but not as thoroughly: only undervolting is supported, via the /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu*/cpufreq/phc_vids interface.
  • PHC-K8 0.4.6
    PHC out-of-tree package for AMD processors v0.4.6
    (22.88 KiB) Downloaded 2328 times
    • Changes since 0.4.5:
      • Merged changes from powernow-k8 up to kernel version 3.18.
      • Removed support for 2.6 kernels.

    The automated DKMS build system can be used for this driver, just unpack this package and run "sudo make dkms_install". The module will be build automatically every time a new kernel version is installed. To uninstall, simply run "sudo make dkms_uninstall".
    Or without DKMS, you can just run "make clean all && sudo make install" and do that every time you're running a new kernel version. For more detail, read the README file in the package.

    Please support us by reporting any problems, improving the code or send some feedback

INTEL patches:
Those patches are tested with
  • Mobile Centrino,
    Atom (N2xx),
    Core/Core2 (T and P - Series)
They may also be working for other or newer speedstepping Intel CPUs.
  • phc-intel-0.4 TESTRELEASE
    Only use this if you are willing to take bugs, failure, system freezes and incompatibility to all current available scripts!
    (Ok, I hope there are no failures and system freezes but keep that possibility in mind)

    This release has the phc_vids and phc_default_vids interface known from
    the stable releases as well as the new raw interface.

    The raw interface dumps out the pstate as HEX value. There will be a
    translation software (interface shim) soon to read/write those values
    'human readable'.

    Read the included README file!

An update happened, again.

I am sorry for breaking the last package - it included an old Makefile instead of the newest one.
No no... I am not employed at Microsoft!

Thanks for fs4000 for notifying me :)
