We are the minority. Power gamers, power programmers, and renderers are (when combined) a barely noticeable minority. To cater to the biggest market, Intel is pushing x86 into power efficiency. If they can get close to ARM's efficiency, and incorporate their own graphics processor, they will have that market by the short hairs. To whit, Intel is giving up on the power processors, at least in the desktop arena. Servers are still a focus, but the "enthusiast" level hardware is being slowly choked. Broadwell will bring better power efficiency, a better IGP, and that'll be it. It isn't a pleasant thought, but it's likely the only viable option for Intel.
