We need mobile supercomputers that provide massive computational performance from the power in a battery. These supercomputers will make our personal devices much easier to use. They will perform real-time speech recognition, video transmission and analysis, and high bandwidth communication. And they will do so without us having to worry about where the next electrical outlet will be. But to achieve this functionality, we must rethink the way we design computers. Rather than worrying solely about performance, with the occasional nod to power consumption and cost, we need to judge computers by their performance-power-cost product. This new way of looking at processors will lead us to new computer architectures and new ways of thinking about computer system design.
