Intel has a problem. At high clock speeds, its Pentium 4 Prescott is power hungry beyond belief, while AMD, thanks to its Athlon64 processor, stands by laughing. Who cares about power? You should. The P4's high power consumption leads to a high electricity bill, and the chip puts out enormous amounts of heat, which in turn necessitates large and noisy fans to cool it.

Intel has a secret, though. Did you know that the chipmaker produces a processor that only draws one fifth of the power of a desktop chip? Yes, this is a notebook processor talking about. So can this miracle chip be used in a desktop system? Does it pack enough punch for a gaming setup? Indeed, it does!
