Intel CEO touts power-saving chip focus
Question of the Day
SANTA CLARA, CALIF. (AP) - Intel’s CEO says his company’s focus is shifting toward power-saving chips as smartphones and tablets account for a rising share of the computer market.
Intel will aim for power consumption of 15 watts as a midpoint. Now, the midpoint for chips for laptops is around 35 watts.
Paul Otellini’s comments Tuesday at an investor conference reinforced the urgency for the computer industry to adapt to the rise of Internet-connected mobile gadgets.
For example, he noted separately that tablets based on Intel chips are expected later this year and smartphones are due early next year, and those new devices in turn will boost demand for servers _ many of which use Intel chips. He said one server is needed to handle the traffic from every 600 smartphones or 122 tablets.
