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?).
