Remarks 

The value returned by SmartShift is an integer number which is within -100 to +100 range.

A negative value indicates that the power is shifted to the CPU.

A positive value indicates that the power is shifted to the GPU.

Considering zero as the state with no power shift, the larger the deviation from zero, the larger the power shift.
