What is Pstate?
Similarly, it is asked, what is Cstate?
In order to save energy when the CPU is idle, the CPU can be commanded to enter a low-power mode. Each CPU has several power modes and they are collectively called "C-states" or "C-modes". They are numbered starting at C0, which is the normal CPU operating mode, i.e. the CPU is 100% turned on.
Likewise, should I disable C states? Disabling C-States can help with stability but it isn't likely to help if you aren't doing anything extreme. Disabling C-States will prevent your processor from going into a low power state and will significantly increase idle power consumption.
Also to know, what is Core c6 state in BIOS?
C6 is a power state available to the processor as a power-saving measure. The only effect it would have is if you leave the computer idle for a while. You might notice a slight bit of lag when you first use the computer as the processor changes power states.
What is P State overclocking?
A power state or "p state" overclock however will not only enable you to overclock above stock speeds but also step back down when idle (similar to Intel's speedstepping).
