Intel unveils Ivy Bridge, Haswell processors
Intel CEO Paul Otellini presented his company’s dream project on manufacturing advanced chips that will significantly reduce power consumption in the Ultrabook laptops.
The company introduced Ultrabooks against MacBook Air, which are slick, slender and lightweight models under the range $1000; the products will be available to users by this Christmas.
The CEO, at the Intel Development Conference in San Francisco, acknowledged that eventually by the year 2013 Intel’s laptops would work incessantly for 24 hours on one time charge.
Ultrabooks with 10 days standby capacity
In the second exposure, he added the laptops would have the capacity to stretch “connected” standby mode for full 10 days. The 10 days – at a stretch run – means Ultrabooks is blank and without any display but is running and network connected.
In an official note, Intel accounted this as, “always-on-always-connected computing where Ultrabooks stay connected when in standby mode, keeping the e-mail, social media and digital content up-to-date.”
Intel also unveiled a sample chip named by the company “Near Threshold Voltage Core”. The chip is again the company’s dream processor which will allow computers to run by a solar powered cell.The chip is of the size of a postage stamp.
Intel’s upcoming Ivy Bridge and Haswell processors
However, Ivy Bridge and Haswell processors, two products to eventually modify Ultrabooks, are Intel’s much awaited products amongst Intel loyal in the market.
The Ivy Bridge microprocessor will succeed the Sandy Bridge processor to reach market during early 2012.
Intel introduced a 22nm Ivy Bridge earlier in 2011 which is planned to be produced with ‘3D transistor process’. Ivy Bridge microprocessor will consume merely half of the energy in comparison to Sandy Bridge processor.
On the other hand, Haswell processor – releasing in the year 2013 – will consume all the less energy than what the Ivy Bridge will consume.
