Intel's New ‘Jasper Forest' Chip Improves Performance With Less Power

Written by Daniel

Intel announced the ‘Jasper Forest' line of processors earlier this year. The new processors, named for a petrified forest in Arizona, have gone from concept to prototype and Intel is giving customers a peak now at what the 45-nanometer Jasper Forest CPUs have to offer. [Front page....]

That's nice. They've taken a 130W CPU and reworked it to take 103W.

I'm still waiting for them to take a 5W CPU and rework it to take only 1W. Then things that desperately need power efficiency will be more viable - like netbooks. Don't get me wrong - this is important for data centres. I just don't run a data centre.
