Can you be more specific how firms like Open Silicon, e-Silicon can further optimize power efficiency? Do they even have internal capability to address this?? Not that they should not try these kind of efforts but sounds like you're overestimating fabless ASIC houses' capabilities.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
