Intel Reveals More on Haswell 22 nm CPU Coming 2013

At IDF, Intel demonstrated a chip that will come after Ivy Bridge, the next "tick" in Intel's release schedule. That chip is codenamed Haswell, and it will bring architectural improvements to the 22 nm process that will first be introduced in Ivy Bridge.

Intel sees Haswell as the goal for its multi-phase Ultrabook initiative. Looking into its future plan for the platform, Intel CEO Paul Otellini described a new class of platform power management in development for the 2013 Haswell products for Ultrabooks.

Intel said that advances in silicon technology and platform engineering are expected to reduce idle platform power by more than 20 times over current designs without compromising computing performance. Otellini said he expects that this design change, combined with industry collaboration, will lead to more than 10 days of connected standby battery life by the time the products hit in 2013.

The connected standby battery life means that notebooks could operate like today's smartphones, which can be in a sleep mode but still stay connected, keeping the e-mail, social media and digital content up-to-date.

    Standby by connectivity of ten days for a laptop, sounds crazy cool. Might have to buy another laptop with advances like that.

    Intel still trying to catch up to AMD in the laptop market.

    It sounds like some folks are going thru upgrade withdrawal symptoms...

    Glad to see Intel making technology upgrade n such but to bad i hate them due to their dirty practices.
  • burnley14
    Sounds good to me. I guess the tri-gate transistors are a good idea after all.
  • DjEaZy
    ... and what will intel do about GPU?

    So, who in the computing industry has a clean record?
  • DroKing
    A few of them has cleaner track records than Intel's.
  • enzo matrix
    leeashtonApple do they have a clean recordNo. And they also exclusively use Intel CPUs. lol

    If I was CEO of AMD right now, I'd fire myself, talk about mismanagement.
