AMD Barcelona will have new power features

AMD’s upcoming Barcelona processors will feature an enhanced PowerNow feature. Each of the four cores on this chip will be capable of running at completely different clock speeds depending on load. AMD claims this will cut another 10Watts per chip, even though they are adding an additional 2 cores.

This is pretty amazing and will no doubt put AMD back in the game when it comes to raw speed and power efficiency against Intel.
