Based on experience from previous generation, it's pretty much that 
number, and another 1W idle power can be saved from Render-C. those are 
pretty much the HW power saving feature we can leverage now.

Another feature called DPST which basically adjust backlight based on 
color histogram can't be open sourced. Not sure if it's enabled in the 
windows test environment in bug# 31588.
