Traditionally Intel has owned the notebook and desktop computer environment with its processors where performance is often the most important feature. However, when it came to mobile devices such as tablets typically ARM processors were the most popular because of their power miserly nature. Most ARM chips have the power consumption below two watts.
By comparison, Intel's latest Ivy Bridge processors consume as much as 17 W of power. The more power the processor consumes, the shorter the battery life of the device using the Intel part. Microsoft chose the Ivy Bridge Core i5 processor for the Surface Pro tablet, which has roughly half the battery life of the Surface RT tablet.
However, Intel has announced that it is setting its sights on significantly reducing the power consumption of its Ivy Bridge chips. Intel hopes to slash the power consumption and spur device makers to adopt its processors for tablets and other mobile systems where battery life is paramount.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
