“As you have probably seen, we’ve made significant improvements to power consumption in the past few releases, and it’s an area of continued focus and investment. Since the beginning of the year, we’ve made a 33% improvement in video playback GPU/CPU power consumption on Windows 10. And by Chrome 53, we feel confident that we’ll be at parity with other browsers in terms of power consumption for the majority of video playback on the Internet.” said a Google’s representative in a recent interview.
