Intel has been on a roll over the last couple of years with a series of great innovations being introduced with their new products that is setting the benchmark for speed, low temperatures and reliability. Now the company is set to unveil a new chip that will offer unprecedented battery life.
Intel has announced three new chips that are squarely aimed at reducing the energy consumption required to run it. Intel is so confident about their new products that the company is predicting laptops to run all day by 2013 based on a single charge or go on connected standby for almost 10 days.
The center of the energy efficiency claims of Intel lies on the Haswell processor, that will be shipped on 2013. This chip will be extending the energy efficiency claims further than any of Intel’s other products. The processor has been specially designed to allow for a Haswell-powered laptop to run for one full day on a single charge. The idle platform power will also be reduced by up to 20 times compared to current designs. Compare this to the Macbook Air that runs for seven hours on a single charge and has a 30 day regular standby.
For those who are confused about what connected standby is – this is a computer state wherein the display is turned off but the device is still connected to the network, which simply means the device is still connected and on, constantly updating email, social media and digital content.
