    Intel has been talking about low-power chips at ISSCC, in particular an ulta-low voltage processor which is capable of operating at voltages as low as 280mV, it would help create future chips with a...

    Operating at 280mV? That's quite impressive!

    Sure, not anywhere near full capacity or whatever but still, exciting times.

    If they can get higher speeds at same power drain then thy will be on next level.

    280mV while 3MHz | 1.2V while 915MHz.

    It is nice that it can be saving watts while not used, good for mobile.
    But what exactly is better on having 915MHz @ 1.2V versus 3.5GHz @ 1.2V on usual CPU today?

    I'm curious as to how far I can underclock my 3930K and how low a voltage :p

    Maybe clock for clock intel kicks the competition's butt? No idea.
