CPU & Memory specific drivers


Hi

I have heard it is possible to add some files to my linux system which will make it run faster, using more specific drivers for my CPU and my memory.

Is this true and where shall I start looking? By that I mean what should I type in to find out the information I need and then where do I start looking


Thanks for your time,

Rob

"I have heard it is possible to add some files to my linux system which will make it run faster, using more specific drivers for my CPU and my memory."

I think that you are referring to kernel parameters. When you compile a kernel there are hardware parameters that you can set which will affect the speed of your CPU and memory usage.
