FIVR: worthwhile?

Was it worth the die space for Intel to include the FIVR on any CPU design? I've read one of the downsides of the FIVR is the higher thermal load created by having it on-die. Is FIVR still used on laptop CPU's? Or has FIVR been eliminated from the entirety of Intel's line-up?

FIVR is still used on Intel's Core i mobile CPUs and it will continue to be used because it saves Intel money. That is their only motivation.

If thermal load was a concern, Intel would have moved on from the 14nm technology that they have been using for their desktop CPUs for the last 6 years.

Voltage regulation is atrocious and you can't fight it in any way. The sooner it die out the better.
