These settings can be changed individually for each software application.
For processor intensive applications - such as Games, Emulators, Image Viewers, Movie Players, Database applications, Map Viewers, 3D Graphic Renderers etcetera - the CPU clock can be set as high as possible to maximize the system performance and user experience.
For less processor intensive applications - such as PIM applications, Launchers, Ebook readers etcetera - the CPU clock can be set as low as possible to maximize the battery life!
The different CPU clock settings have been tested thoroughly with each of the supported devices. The possible settings in Lightspeed are the ones that have been found very stable during testing and are somewhat different depending which of the supported devices Lightspeed is used with.
Lightspeed supports virtually all Palm OS 5 devices. Clocking support exists for multiple processor types - Intel XScale, Texas Instruments OMAP, i.MX1/i.MXL and Samsung processors.
