Intel Corporation (INTC): Haswell To Immensely Enhance Battery Life

Updated on

The Haswell Core processors from Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) is claimed to enhance the battery life by almost 50 percent in the laptops compared to the “Ivy Bridge” chips, claim the chip maker.

Intel Corporation (INTC): Haswell To Immensely Enhance Battery Life

The core processors, which are code named Haswell, are specifically being designed for laptops and tablets, according to Rani Borkar, corporate vice president and general manager of the Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) Architecture Group

She said that the extended life to the battery will not affect the performance of the battery, and the Haswell chips have the caliber to perform better during the idle or standby mode of the device.

Intel New chips better

For months, Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) has been talking about the performance of Haswell and says that the microprocessors will also deliver two times better graphic performance for laptops and three times to that of desktops.

The new line of chips from Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) can be a route that can close the gaps between laptops and tablets by providing various features like enhanced battery life and performance, optional detachable touchscreen and keyboards.

Some Haswell chips will also be incorporated in tablets and will bring down the power consumption of some parts at 7 watts. The Ivy Bridge Core Chips brought down the power consumption to as low as 10 watts. Rani Borkar claimed that the tablet, which will run on the Haswell Core Processors, will have similar battery life to that of non-Intel tablet, but the performance will be better than the “content consumption” device.

The low power consumption will be possible from an on-chip power management unit, which will give a detailed and focused view on the energy consumption on the chip. There will also be voltage regulators, which will further reduce the battery consumption. Apart from this, power consumed will also be cut down due to faster interconnectivity.

Intel needed Haswell

It has become the need of the hour for Intel to make some improvements in the processors. The sales of the PC’s have declined to its worst, and consumers are inclined more towards the tablets and smartphones. The only hope for the PC market is any breakthrough technology by Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC).

It is expected that the PC makers will showcase the performance, which they will achieve with Haswell in Taiwan and will showcase the hybrid devices like screens that can be detached or folded back to get converted in to a tablet.

The new chips are expected to be rolled over the next month in a Computex trade show, in Taipei. Haswell is an up gradation of Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC)’s set architecture, which it delivers after every two years.
