quote: What sets Moorestown apart from previous processors is the fact that it combines CPU, GPU and memory controller functions into one chip. Essentially, this is the same intention that AMD has with its Fusion program. AMD's Fusion also encompasses mobile devices as well as desktops. It is only a matter of time before we see the same idea from Intel in the desktop space being applied to devices such as thin clients and budget PCs.

Even at that, the chipset/CPU isn't where most of the energy savings will come from. My guess is the extra savings will come from OLED displays (or at least LCD-backlit displays), SDD HDDs, and more efficient wireless cards. A good mobile CPU+chipset only consumes 25-35W at load. It's everything else in the notebook that still needs some improvement.
