Modes
*Dynamic Hotplug Mode
Default. Recently, mobile multicore CPUs turn off extra core(s) to save battery life when system is not busy and only use 1 core.
They turn on extra core(s) when system is busy. so system use all cores again.

*Single Core Mode
Use 1 core always. A extra core is shut down. It makes battery life longer but performance is decreased.

*Dual Core Mode
Use 2 cores always. Performance is increased but battery life is shorter than others.
