AMD is getting back some of the swagger it had back in the early days of the Athlon 64, and that’s due in no small part to the success of its Fusion APUs. The low-cost processors power dozens of inexpensive laptops, and they offer an solid mix of value, performance, and battery life.

Better still, there’s a free, open source program that lets you take control over your Fusion APU. Want to sacrifice battery life for a boost in raw horsepower? Or maybe you need to squeeze out every last second of life your power pack has to offer? BrazosTweaker can help.

Just download and install the program on your AMD C-50 or E-350/450 powered laptop, and you’re good to go. Some users have reported drops in power consumption of up to 6 watts and temperature reductions of 12 degrees Celsius. And even when underclocking, BrazosTweaker users report that the APU can still handle Blu-Ray playback without missing a beat.

If you’ve got an AMD Llano APU in your system, check out the developer’s other offering — FusionTweaker.

One reply on “Make your AMD Fusion laptop quieter or faster with BrazosTweaker”

  1. I don’t think this will give you a “boost in raw horsepower” or make the cpu go faster.  It only underclocks / undervolts, not over.
