Submission + - Atom processors break power efficiency benchmark (

schliz writes: German researchers have set a new record for energy efficient data sorting with a system based on netbook processors and Solid State Disks (SSD). The system, dubbed EcoSort, more than tripled the power efficiency of former record holders, leading one of its developers to claim: "In the long run, many small, power-efficient and cooperating systems are going to replace the so far used, heavy weighted ones."

Records were defined by 'Sort Benchmark', which was created by missing Microsoft scientist Jim Gray and was now managed by representatives of companies like of Hewlett-Packard, Microsoft.
