The Intel engineer then launched a game, Angry Birds Space to see how things fared within this type of application combining graphics rendering, CPU processing and sound effects. This time the Intel processor seemed noticeably better at conserving battery power when it came to the static scoring screen due to some “software, hardware, various optimisations”. All-in-all an interesting comparison that shows Intel mobile power consumption is currently competitive to that of some ARM chips.
