I was wondering why the A7 consumes less power than the A15 in the octo-core? Does it have less transistors, and as a simpler design use less power? I thought that each iteration of CPU technology was more efficient than the last, or is that because they use more miniaturized silicon? And so fewer transistors on miniaturized silicon uses less power than the newer cpu design? Did I just answer my own question?
