Intel unveils a trio of chips that aim to reduce energy consumption, including the 2013 Haswell microprocessor that will allow laptops to run all-day
At the Intel Development Conference in San Francisco today, CEO Paul Otellini unveiled the company’s vision of new chips that will drastically decrease power consumption in the Ultrabook laptops. Thanks to the chips, Intel believes that by 2013 their laptops will be able to leap a full 24 day with a single charge, and have the ability to go 10 days on “connected” standby.
Intel’s Ultrabooks is an answer to the MacBook Air. Sleek, thin, lightweight and under $1000—the first products should be available by the holiday season. But the two upcoming Ivy Bridge and Haswell processors which will eventually enable Ultrabooks are Intel’s aces.
