Intel Dynamic Acceleration
Intel Dynamic Acceleration (IDA) sometimes called Dynamic Acceleration Technology (DAT) is a technology created by Intel Corp. in certain multi-core Intel microprocessors. It increases the clock rate of a single core for every two cores above its base operating frequency if the other cores are idle. It is designed for single threaded programs to run faster on multi-core Intel microprocessors. Intel later released a version of IDA called enhanced Dynamic Acceleration Technology (eDAT) for its quad core processors that boosts the performance of 2 cores when only 2 cores are being utilized.
Dual Dynamic Acceleration
With the introduction of quad core processors, Intel modified IDA and released Dual Dynamic Acceleration (DDA).
