Intel Low-Power Processors
Intel is sure to have a number of new chip announcements lined up for Las Vegas, but the biggest news for the chip maker might be its low-power push. Intel will reportedly show off a limited run of Ivy Bridge-based Core chips with enhanced power efficiency, which are designed specifically for notebooks and tablets. Intel will also introduce its forthcoming Haswell processor architecture, which is the successor to Ivy Bridge. Both sets of chips will have a TDP of fewer than 10 watts, which will likely extend battery life for the high-performance Core chips and help Intel better compete against ARM chips.
