    Does it enable further power-saving modes? Does it affect Sleep mode?

    It seems to default to "disabled". Is anyone else enabling this on their Zacate motherboards?

    C6 is a deep low-power state. IIRC it cuts power to cores not being used when the CPU is not idle, but doing light work.

    I don't imagine there's anything wrong with enabling it, but on a platform like Zacate it might only save a couple watts.
