Yes - it's really important for Intel followers to realize that while Intel's performance/power gains are staggering for Intel, a Haswell core still uses about 7 watts, compared to an entire iPad 4, which uses 4 watts, most of which powers the screen. It's Intel's performance numbers at a half watt that will matter.

This article is about fabless semiconductor companies who sell IP for 1 watt ARM CPUs, it's not about 70 watt space heater intel CPUs... This is what low power means.

In mobile applications, batteries are sensitive to peak current demands of electronics, as noted in two recent industry articles (one in EE Times by Energizer and an app note from TI). You can get about 50% increased battery life by reducing repetitive peak current demands. Here is a technology that helps reduce IC peak current, InnovaClockControl, http://www.innovaclockcontrol.com/low_power_vlsi_design.html.

Why don't you follow up ? never heard about Crystalwell? We know about Haswell’s massive shader count, and we know why it has them, but what is Crystalwell exactly? The answer is simple, really wide DRAM on the package, not that fast, but more than wide enough to make up for it. SemiAccurate’s sources are now saying that Crystalwell bearing Haswell GT3s use a DRAM variant, likely DDR3 or LP-DDR3, for their memory. That memory, referred to eDRAM, although not in the classic sense of, “IBM can’t fab that chip at economically viable yields because they use….” type eDRAM, it is not on the same die. Crystalwell puts custom designed DRAM on an interposer with a 512-bit wide data path to the CPU/APU.

hey Haswell will have some eDRAM - good story - why don't you follow up

IoT Network Shoot Out
July 16, 1pm EDT Thursday

Replay available now: A handful of emerging network technologies are competing to be the preferred wide-area connection for the Internet of Things. All claim lower costs and power use than cellular but none have wide deployment yet. Listen in as proponents of leading contenders make their case to be the metro or national IoT network of the future. Rick Merritt, EE Times Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, moderators this discussion. Join in and ask his guests questions.
