Intel Details Huge Battery Life Increases for Ultrabook platforms

Tags: , , ,

It’s not like we weren’t expecting this. We had a good idea last September and wrote about Haswell’s potential to increase battery life back in Jan. Intal have released some slides today that show some more details.

The new Core i7-4650U, a 15W TDP part, could offer 50% more video playback time over the Core i7-3667U (which Intel cheekily calls a 20W TDP platform now that it matters!) It’s the same story as we saw on Intel Clovertrail last year and that improvement is likely to rise for smaller-screen Ultrabooks and tablets. More importantly, standby time is improved although Intel haven’t talked about Connected Standby here which means that with Windows 8, Metro apps can be running in the background while the desktop is off. Expect to see some figures for that over the next few days as more details are made public and Computex press events happen tomorrow (Monday morning in Taiwan.)

Remember that these are very specific scenarios but even in general use we’re expecting the much lower background drain to bring big increases in battery life.

HD 5000 Haswell

Intel Iris and Intel Iris Pro have just been announced as the new brands for the top two tiers of Intel’s 4th-gen Core processor (Haswell) graphics. Iris will appear in Ultrabooks but, surprisingly, only on a 28W TDP processor. It indicates that there are some higher-level processing options coming to Ultrabooks. Other 4th-gen Core processors for Ultrabooks get HD 5000 graphics.

Haswell Overview – Dual Slice GPU to Feature in Ultrabooks in 2013

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,


One of the aims of attending the Intel Developer Forum last week for me was to find out as much as possible about 2013, Haswell and what it means for Ultrabooks. I’m sure there’s more detail to come soon (and possibly, a new roadmap) but I came away with a lot of useful information that I’ve summarized below. What is clear is that Haswell is more about mobility than any other Core CPU to date. It will extend down into tablet territory enabling detachable screens and new form factors. There will be a huge focus on active standby; the claimed 20x lower idle power should equate to multi-day ‘active’ idle. A ‘dual slice’ GPU will feature in Ultrabooks
