"In the Microprocessor Forum (MPF), Rise Technology Company (Rise) today demonstrated the ultra low power feature of Rise's iDragon mP6 processor core. As the industry's lowest power consuming and best multimedia performing X86 processor core, Rise iDragon mP6 processor can playback VCD movie titles with only a single off-the-shelf AA battery. This demonstration showed the potential of the Rise iDragon mP6 processor core for future multimedia-enriched handheld appliances."

"Powered by a single AA battery, the iDragon mP6 processor with its superior three-scalar multimedia architecture played back entire VCD movies or MP3 music for many hours. In the demonstration, the voltage of the battery started from 1.5V and was down to 1.1V at the end. This shows that mP6 can dynamically operate effectively in a wide range of voltages."
