Ars Technica has a good piece on Intel’s recent Research Day and the innovations that the chip maker is bringing to power management in its product lines.
So much of what Intel showed at their research day had power as either a primary or a secondary theme that it’s worth taking some time to look at a few of their power-related research projects. I also had some on-background conversations with current and former employees of companies with names you’d recognize, and those chats also had power consumption as a major theme. In short, everyone that I talked to in Silicon Valley is thinking about power in some form or another: how to generate it, how to save it, and how to wring the most out of every watt. So let’s talk power.
