Intel: consumers not bright enough for discussion
AMD WANT PEOPLE TO believe they care about battery life. Intel, however, want you to know it's all too complicated for mere mortal consumers.
Open up Photoshop, run a Blue-Ray film, or even use tweetdeck, and users can watch their estimated battery time flush itself down the toilet. Oh, and Mobile Mark doesn't take "wireless enabled" into account, so if you use the Internet, you can forget those four hours the little sticker on your new laptop box promised you.
One suggestion AMD has put forward for discussion on a company blog is the use of 3DMark06, taxing about 50 per cent of a system's capability, instead of Mobile Mark's five per cent.This, notes Dessau, is just a starting point for discussion, adding "We're trying to engage the community in a conversation."
Intel, however, disagrees that riff-raff like consumers should be involved in any sort of discussion, noting "There are many ways to measure battery life. We believe the best way to determine how to measure battery life is by making proposals and debating it in industry consortiums and not via blog post."
