Intel® Memory Thermal Management

The processor provides thermal protection for system memory by throttling memory traffic when using either DIMM modules or a memory down implementation. Two levels of throttling are supported by the processor, either a warm threshold or hot threshold that is customizable through memory mapped I/O registers:

  • Throttling based on the warm threshold should be an intermediate level of throttling.
  • Throttling based on the hot threshold should be the most severe.
The amount of throttling is dynamically controlled by the processor.
