Intel To Deliver 'Satisfaction Per Watt'

Intel Corp. unveiled a new strategy to tackle an ongoing problem in the industry: power consumption.

SAN FRANCISCO — Intel Corp. on Monday (March 6) unveiled a new strategy to tackle an ongoing problem in the industry: power consumption.

Intel tipped its so-called Energy Efficient System Architecture (EESA), a collection of technologies and architectural improvements that will result in higher performance per watt across all platforms.

“We would like to deliver satisfaction per watt,” said Raj Yavatkar, Intel Fellow and director of the company’s System Technology Lab, in a presentation.

EESA consists of several components: fine-grain power management, power delivery, power management, and I/O optimization,

The key component is what the company calls “Intel Fine Grain Power Management,” which focuses on reducing the average power on a system without compromising performance.
