I like the approach to saving power and thus extending battery life. Given the CVFsq nature of power would it make for a more efficient GPU if it was made more parallel and ran at a much slower clock frequency? Given the frequency is squared in the power calculation I would expect significant power savings through increasing the silicon used to provide the graphics processing. Just a thought (has this been done already?).

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.
