but... then is it only miniaturization that makes the newer cpu designs more efficient, and not improved memory controllers etc? I ask because it's heard said that newer processors can do more work for the same clock speed. But if that is the case, why not use newer processors at lower clock speeds rather than the older processors? Oh dear, I started off well...
