It's a brand new SoC with great power management. No doubt. But having four cores vs two cores isn't the reason why it consumes less power if you ask me. They'll probably shut down 2-3 cores during most normal tasks and while in stand-by and then the more advanced voltage management and 32nm part comes into play big time compared to the previous generation 45nm dual core.

It would be really interesting to see a 32nm dual core version for better comparison!

btw, Rakeesh, stop your Apple bashing please. When I responded to your post the last sentence wasn't there. Then you had to edit in another Apple bash. Why?
