nonsense.  stick it in a 25W AM1 system, for instance.
or amortize a 50W i3 system across three cards.

but of course I get your point: if your main concern is 
the 15W power budget (and perhaps DC), it adds an OK
compute boost to the usual ARM offerings.

it's exactly as fast as you'd expect if you scale down any other 
kepler to the K1's number of shaders, its lower clock and memory, no?

besides the joy of harrassment, I guess my main point was that 
Maxwell is supposed to be Nvidia's big jump in power efficiency, not Kepler.
