Mobile processors have reached the point where they are so powerful that there's rarely an app or task that uses their full capacity, not to mention the 64-bit A7's prowess that will go largely underutilized for now. The next step, however, are the super-frugal dedicated processors of the future that can power supplementary always-on endeavors like speech recognition or movement sensitivity. Motorola used a dedicated low-power chip for the speech telling abilities in its X8 chipset, while Apple made a separate M7 one for the always-on motion sensing tasks in the A7, for instance...

Intel is a Powerful company I believe they can make very low power chips if they put their minds to it.but how will they cost. One of the reasons Windows 8 and 8.1 tablets sales may lag behind Apple ipads and Android tablets is because of the cost of Intel Haswell i5 and i7 is so high. These 2 chips are the best needed to smoothly run Windows 8 or 8.1 on Tablets or Desktop PC's. the true success of Windows 8.1 tablets depends upon the cost of the Intel /Amd x86 chips that run them. even a cheap windows 8.1 8 inch tablets costs 300 dollars. the cost of Intel/AMD x86 have to go way down to compete with ARMS CPU chips

"but how little energy can they consume? Very, it turned out at Intel's Developer Forum"
What, very? More power hungry than AMD's new 220W desktop CPUs? Typo there I think...
