Yes Mips/W might be better than just W

The low end of previous Sandy bridge was 20 W. The rest of Sandy Bridge was up to 95 W for better performance. This 17 W is also the low end, so I wonder how high it would go for higher performance.

17W Xeon, coming down from 65-95W, is an impressive improvement. With all the power saving improvements, a 15A rack might be able to accommodate twice as many servers. Cloud based companies would be really happy. No doubt consumers will be benefit from it. A benchmark of the latest Ivy Bridge server chips would be nice.

In the latest CRN Awards, Intel won nearly all the categories it was included except on price where AMD came top. Intel is a leader and it is a matter of time that it will be a monopoly.
