nVIDIA has finally posted its DirectX
10 demos for the G80. Microsoft's Zune is doing better
than expected. Intel has quietly improved
power efficiency of its Core 2 Duo processors.
As a contrast, Core 2 Duo eats up 22 Watts while doing nothing and 65W when
working under full load. With the new revision, power consumption in idle state
(C1E) goes down to 12W. However, the methods Intel and AMD use yo express power
consumption are not comparable, because AMD calls for Maximum TDP, while Intel
declares Typical TDP.
