To be honest, I don't know all the details. Being a LB developer I would 
like to see the documents released but I don't know how or when that 
will happen. As for ACPI, when I do get a chance to work on the 690/600, 
there shouldn't be any NDA issues (obviously since I am an AMD 
employee). It is an internal requirement to have PowerNow working with LB.
