Grazzhopper posted earlier mentioning Intel’s push for more energy friendly cpus.

They haven’t stopped there.

The voltage regulators found on your current motherboards are going to find a new home – inside your cpu! Accelerated voltage regulation is apparently the key to reducing power consumption by up to 35% on laptops. Intel’s all new “CMOS voltage regulator” will be neatly kept together and “located close or even inside the CPU. Faster voltage regulation means increased response time, and less power wasted by each core.”
