Abstract: Interactive 3D games are now widely available on a variety of mobile devices for which battery-life is a major concern. Many of these devices support voltage/frequency-scalable processors and dynamic voltage scaling (DVS) has emerged as a powerful technique for energy management in such devices. Although DVS algorithms have been very successfully applied to video encoding/decoding applications, their use in interactive computer games has not been sufficiently explored so far. In this thesis, we investigate the workload characteristics of game applications and observe that interactive game applications exhibit sufficient workload variations, thereby, are highly amenable to DVS techniques. Based on the above observations, we propose several DVS schemes for the power-aware gaming on portable devices.
