Ludicrous. A 140W CPU? Obviously this is catered towards the enthusiast, but one hundred forty watts for a CPU?! That’s just insane. ASUS doesn’t seem to think so since they have plans to accomodate such monstrosities.
There’s focus smaller and less power hungry processors though with news of an Intel Atom dual-core processor running at 1.6 GHz and consuming a measily 8 watts of power. That’s impressive. So impressive that NVIDIA wants to get into the small CPU space and make their own processors.
