The article failed to mention rapid progresses in Compound Semiconductor Technology, which is far superior than Si technology in terms of RDSON and switching performance.

The expression "Save the World" is so trite and over-used (and abused). The implication that the world is ending is preposterous enough, but saving a few watts here and there is going to save us from calamity is totally absurd. The "green" thing is so over-hyped, the very label is becoming a turn-off. I would have so much more respect for an article if it said this device will save me twenty-seven cents a year.

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.
