14 Intel 4th-Gen Core U and Y Series Processors Listed – Tops Out at 3.3Ghz with GPU Surprises.

4thgencoregraphicA few surprises have been revealed in Intel’s CPU database updates today. It turns out that some U-Series processors – the ones we expected only to appear in Ultrabooks – will have HD4xxx graphics. Given that Intel had previously said that Ultrabooks will only have GT3 graphics (HD5000 and Iris HD5100) it could mean that mainstream laptops will also have the option of U-Series SoCs and therefore the possibility of smaller mainboards and S0ix support (for Windows 8 Connected Standy.) It’s confusing and we’re trying to get clarification from Intel but we’ve got an overview of the part numbers, TDP, clocks and graphics below including some Y-Series processors and the real meaning of “6W SDP” which is actually an 11.5W TDP CPU.

Next-Gen Ultrabook Runs for 9.5hrs in Timelapse Video

Tags: , , , ,


Sure, we can all get an Ultrabook to run for 10hrs. I did it myself recently when I put a Samsung through a typing test but how about being online and running web apps? Running the web through a browser is one of the most taxing things you can do to a laptop so seeing 9.5hrs runtime in a MobileMark2012 test is something worth checking out, in 60 seconds with a timelapse video. Haswell is doing the business.

Intel Computex Keynote. 2-in-1, Fanless Tablets and Summer Availability for Ultrabooks

Tags: , , , , ,


keynote 1

No surprise that 4th-Gen Core (codename Haswell) was the big news at the opening keynote at Computex today. It marks the coming of age of Ultrabooks as the silicon finally meets the requirements for making unique PCs around Ultrabook design methodologies. The Ultrabook now breaks out into 2-in-1’s, Convertibles and Tablets, covers new ground and increases the range of usage scenarios for existing products. Ultrabooks with Haswell will start appearing in summer. Tablets built on the platform can potentially be fanless.

Ultrabooks get Meaning, Unique Selling Points with Haswell

Tags: , , , , , , , , ,


Ultrabooks. Copies of the MacBook Air. Expensive laptops. Bringing nothing new to the table. I’ve read it all and discussed it all but knew from day 1 that there would be something special coming. Having followed Atom from day 1 to the point where Moorestown finally got the architecture right I knew what Intel could achieve. Haswell was built with the next generation laptop in mind. It’s HDR-Computing with Connected Standby, some of the best integrated graphics on the market, video engines that can process end-to-end 4K and TDP’s that will allow manufacturers to design PCs you never thought were possible. With Haswell, Ultrabooks get meaning.

Intel Details Huge Battery Life Increases for Ultrabook platforms

Tags: , , ,


intel-slide-battery-life-haswell

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.

Intel Launches 4th-Gen Core. Haswell available in Devices from 4th June.

Tags: , , ,


Intel-Haswell-Die-ShotIt’s finally happened. Intel’s 4th-Gen Core has launched.

At time of writing we’re not seeing any news direct from Intel and it looks like only quad-core reviews are being let out of the gate for the time being but there’s one important bit of news we’re picking up and that’s that products with Haswell inside will be available starting 4th June. Yes, next week. Those products include tablets so we assume that the first Ultrabooks with Haswell will be available too.

First out of the gate onto our search results was Techage but there’s already a Core i7-4440K (desktop part) review available from Hexus and PC Advisor.

At this stage there’s not much more we can add so we’ll leave it at that and resume our search for more Ultrabook news related to Haswell and 4th-Gen Core.

We’ll update with the Intel PR when we find it.

Update: Engadget are claiming Haswell will officially launch on 4th June. At this stage I think we can safely say that it’s official and ignore any reference to ‘launch.’

“Designed for Gaming” says the advertising for the Razer Blade Ultrabook. We say you should look closely at this one even if you’re not a gamer. Haswell, 1600×900, 70Wh battery and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M make this Ultrabook unique. The design is pretty hot too.
