    what will be the tdp of these processors if you turn off the integrated graphics?

    TDP is not power consumption. But it would probably depend on the situation. If you're using something GPU intensive, obviously a discrete card will draw more power than an integrated one, while on CPU intensive programs, I'd assume the power consumption would be similar since it would just Turbo Boost.

    Speaking of power consumption, would idle power draw drop? Can we expect a small increase in battery performance?

    With more efficient power gating, it might.

    They don't care about it, they are pushing Light Peak.

    how do you measure power consumption of cpus? i just use tdp right now to get a sense of how different cpus compare with power consumption

    You and me both. I think Intel's PR team is on crack. IDK WTH is up with that chart. I spent 10 minutes of my life trying to figure out what corresponds to what, and that's time that's just not recoverable. :(


    Do you have a rough time frame as to when Intel is looking to deploy Light Peak?

    If it wasn't for the "S" "T" & such special features fitted in the lineup it would be clear enough imo (the higher the better, more or less) but for now it's quite messy for the average consumer.
