I recently got  a new machine with Skylake and one of the technologies advertised is hardware Pstates. From what I could tell Linux and Windows support this technology but I couldn't find anything about the BSD's. I must admit I don't clearly understand the technology but I guess my questions are basically whether DragomFly supports these and if not will battery life be worse. Also is it still reccommended to use powerd to scale the cpu for saving battery on these CPU's? Thanks for the help.
