Investigating Idle Power

As you study power at near idle, watch for very high frame rates.
If your app has high frame rates at near idle power (during cut scenes, menus, or other low-GPU intensive parts), remember that these parts of your app will look fine if you lock the present interval to a 60 Hz display refresh rate (or clamp your frame rate lower, to 30 fps).
Watch for these behaviors in menus, loading screens, and other low-GPU intensive parts of games, and scale accordingly to minimize power consumption. This can also improve CPU intensive loading times, by allowing turbo boost to kick in, when necessary.
